When life gives you lemons....

A comment was made by mere on her blog about me making lemonade out of the lemons life has been throwing my way. Of course that got me thinking lol.

So here is my study on lemons.

There are many different things you can make with lemons other then lemonade. Personally I don't like lemonade lol and since I get lots of lemons I learned a lot of different ways to use them.

Lemon chicken
Lemon on fish
Lemon bars
Lemon ice box pie
Lemon meringue pie
Lemon cake

Well you get the idea lol.

So what does the word say about turning our lemons (trials or tribulations) into something else?

Deut 4:29 But if from thence thou shalt seek the LORD thy God, thou shalt find him, if thou seek him with all thy heart and with all thy soul. 30 When thou art in tribulation, and all these things are come upon thee, even in the latter days, if thou turn to the LORD thy God, and shalt be obedient unto his voice; 31 (For the LORD thy God is a merciful God;) he will not forsake thee, neither destroy thee, nor forget the covenant of thy fathers which he sware unto them.

Jn 16:33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

Ro 5:3 And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience

Something made from the lemon! Patience !!

Want something really great made from lemons? How about:

Rev 2:10
Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.

Now you have to admit that the crown of life is worth a few lemons in our life!!!!

So next time life hands you lemons, make something great out of them with God's help!
