Lemons or Lemonade?


Lemons or Lemonade

In the movie Forest Gump he said, “Life is like a box of chocolates” and Lynn Anderson’s song, “I never promised you a rose garden”. The Bible tells us that everything we need has already been provided to us by the God who created us.

So what are we to do in this crazy mixed up, woke-world we live in?

We are told patriotism (pride in our country) is bad, but taking “free money” from our government is bad. Being a citizen of the United States is being downplayed while claiming everyone is a citizen of the world. When is the last time you received a benefit for being a citizen of the global community?

We are told that global warming causes the earth to become unstable, causing multiple hurricanes, tornadoes, tsunamis, earthquakes and flooding in various places around the globe, yet we have intense famines where food and water are either scarce or non-existent.

Masses of the world are poor and getting poorer while the elite become richer and richer. We live in a world where you either have or have not. It’s easy to spend all your time working or working to not work, so long as you get what you want and it has to be right now.

I surmise that life is not so much as what you experience or what happens to you, but how you relate or handle what comes your way in life. When you come to an obstacle, is it a doorway to/or a barrier keeping you from something new and exciting?

Is the glass half full or half empty? Is it even your glass?

There are no unimportant people. Everyone is born with a purpose.

How do we find OUR purpose?

Some people are born with a calling, while others receive their calling early on and many must ask the Creator – God. When you know what you were created for and you are obedient to the leading of the one who created you, it becomes a labor of love. Otherwise you could spend your entire life searching or wondering – what is the purpose of MY life?

So when it seems that life hands you lemons – make lemonade! – RTM
