Make Lemonade

by | Jun 25, 2022 | Surrender, Trials

“I can do all things through him who strengthens me.”

(Philippians 4:13 ESV))

“Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”

(Matthew 11:28-30 ESV)

Problems come and problems go. We all have them from time to time. There’s an old saying, “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.” So what do you do when things go south for you? Do you stress out and fall apart? Do you shrug your shoulders and hope they away? 

Or maybe you fall to your knees, if your knees will allow it, and pray? That’s my go-to solution. God can solve any problem I have. It’s just a matter of me letting Him.

So many times we cry out to God to take our problems. And that’s good. But do you leave them with Him or do you grab them back and try to solve them yourself? If you don’t leave the problems in God’s hands then they won’t be fixed. God can’t fix what we won’t let Him.

So if we give Him our problems but then take them back, He can’t solve them. I personally would prefer to leave them with God. So no matter what you are going through today, give it to God. He really wants you to give them to Him. He wants to fix what troubles us.

Have a great day.
