Making the Best of Life’s Lemons


Lemons……. We all have them!

What do we do with the lemons in our lives?

Our response can either leave us in despair or lead us to hope. If handled well, lemons can provide opportunities to ask meaningful questions such as what other possibilities exist now because of this lemon? Life’s lemons or challenges can help us gain new perspectives and lead us to invite God into the situation. Our response to life’s lemons can bring healing, wholeness and a better relationship with God and others.

In my life, God is using my challenges to open my eyes to possibilities that I hadn’t considered before. My lemons have helped to uncover some of my own blind spots and have given me opportunities for growth in my walk with the Lord. Recently, I shared at the Christian Communicators Conference how with God’s help I’m learning to make lemonade out of my lemons. You can see my video here: my video

How about you? What is your lemon? How has God added sugar to your lemon to make lemonade? Praise and thank Him for it. 

How will you face future challenges knowing that God is with you?

Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me. (Psalm 23:4, NIV)
