Whine, or lemonade? What do you do with the lemons you get in life?

Whenever we’re disappointed with our spot in our lives we should stop and think about a little girl Jamie. Jamie was trying out for a part in her school play. Her mother told her husband that she’d set her heart on being in it, although she didn’t think she’s get the part.

On the day the parts were handed out, her husband went with the mother to collect her after school. Jamie rushed up to her, eyes shining with pride and excitement.

Guess what Mommy,” she shouted, and then said those words that should remain a lesson to us for a lifetime: “I’ve been chosen to clap and cheer!”

Sometimes we think we’ve been handed a lemon in life, when we have really been handed the ingredients for lemonade. I guess it’s all how you look at it.

Remember that God has chosen a certain path for us to take in this life, make the best of it by honoring His choice and path for you. God will not pour fresh, creative ideas and blessing into old attitudes. Have a glass of lemonade.

Philippians 4:11I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances.
