when life gives you lemons

We all know that saying, “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade,” right?

So often in life, when things don’t go our way, or we don’t get what we want, it is SO easy to be upset and discontented.

What if we looked at life from a different perspective?

What if, when things don’t  go our way, we look and see why? What if our motives were selfish? (Hint: Too often if we want our own way for our own gratification, there is a problem.)

Remember the lemonade part?

Instead of being discontented with circumstances, what if we all looked for the good in the situation?

In almost everything you experience, there is something to be learned, no matter if the situation is good or bad, big or small.

You know what else?

If it seems like you aren’t getting what you want, and it seems like it should be a good thing to have, maybe you need to grow.

Sometimes before we can have a good thing, God needs to work with us so we don’t mess it up.

Something could be the perfect thing for you, but if you aren’t ready for it, and you’re trusting in and submitting to God, He will work with you so you can be ready for it.

So always remember, “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade,” and always look for the silver linings on dark clouds!


Sometimes post ideas come at the randomest times. This post was written out at midnight awhile back, but somehow, it actually turned out to be something to post, unlike other ideas I’ve had at odd times.
