When Life Hands You Lemons

When I was asked to write this blog a lot of topics began to swirl in my head.  There were topics that ranged from relationships to friendships to all things in-between.  I was seriously afraid that I was never going to settle on a topic until Sunday evening came.  It was then that I started to think about lemons and what they make.  It was as if a lightbulb went off in my head.  That’s it!  This week’s blog is, “What happens when life hands you lemons!”


We all have been there.  We are going about life, doing our thing and then BAM! Here come the lemons.  You are caught off guard by something and you have to make the most of it.  Well, my friend, I have decided to give you my recipe for taking lemons and turning them into sweet lemonade.


Squeeze the Lemons– Surround yourself with so much positivity that the negativity has no choice but to leave.  You make a conscious effort to see the good in everything no matter how difficult the situation.


Pour the Water-Fill up your spirit every day with the word of God.  Allow his holiness to go into those hidden places and drive out the negative thoughts and spirits that may try to come to steal your joy.


Add the sugar-Add the sweet sound of things that make you happy.  Find your purpose and dive right in.  Fill your time with things that make you smile and also will advance whatever you want to do in life.  Find out God’s purpose for your life and go for it.


When life hands you lemons start making lemonade.  Will every day be easy, no, but I promise you that once you taste the sweet flavor of your lemonade you won’t ever worry about the lemons again.


Be Blessed!
