How to make lemonade – part 1

You’ve probably heard the expression, “If life gives you lemons, make lemonade.” What that means to me as a Christian is that God’s grace in Christ is greater than any problems we may face. Whether you can have joy in spite of sour circumstances, whether you are able to share sweetness in the midst of suffering depends on your perspective. If our focus is on this world, we have no sure hope. “I will lift my eyes unto the hills. Where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord who made Heaven and earth. “God is the Father who is full of mercy and all comfort. He comforts us every time we have trouble, so when others have trouble, we can comfort them with the same comfort God gives us” 2 Corinthians 1:3-4 (NCV). When times are as unprecedented as they are now, looking to our Lord and laying hold of His good promises makes life sweeter!  So are you looking at lemons or making lemonade?

God Our Rock!

Coronavirus is here: What do we do now?
The situation is changing rapidly, and leaders and experts are scrambling to give guidance to help protect people and slow the spread of the disease. Change can cause us to feel insecure, disoriented and fearful. We need to hold onto the assurance that we have a Heavenly Father who is with us in all situations. “He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?” Romans 8:32 (NIV). He has cared for us and promises that He always will: “For who is God, except the LORD? And who is a rock, except our God?” Psalm 18:31 (NKJV)
