So, you too have had lemons thrown in your day... Before the lemonade you must first squeeze the lemon and it is sour!!!
Just before a break through there is a breakdown. Think about that.
The problem is that we are creatures of habits. When the tough gets going we seem to get stopped out of the blessings.
It is a pattern in all areas of your life. Some areas are more sensitive then others: relationships, finances, work or school.
The best thing to do is work through the break down so that you can rise up and overcome your obstacle.
We have to squeeze the lemon: there is pain, discomfort in being squeezed...
Next, we have to add water and sugar: now the perfect drink... The blessing of your work.
Now go apply this to where you are.
Live Better - Be Better
Here is the ultimate lesson. It is an ultimate sacrifice!!!
If you haven't figured it out yet, my faith is everything of who I am. When I thought of this I just couldn't let go.
God sent his only son to die on the cross. No one, not you or I could have taken Christ's place. It was his cross to bear.
This is my cross. It is heavy and it is mine. People can come along side you as you carry the cross. Christ had his friends and support, you have yours and I have mine, but in the end the only one who can bear your cross is you.
I have friends that have difficulties in their lives. I cannot take the obstacles and struggles away from them. I can come along side, I can give help, and I can even carry the burden for a little while, but it comes times one they can bear their own cross.
Each of us has our struggles. The pain is real and the anger, frustration and the cry of your heart is real.
The gift and peace comes in knowing that you are not alone and through all of it Christ is with you.
Hope, faith & love are the keys.
I have always said that you should not pray for patience. Only pray for patience if you want tests for patience. So what should you pray for. Ask Solomon. You should pray for wisdom. Wisdom to know what to do, who to lean on, where to go. Wisdom is the answer. If you ask, God will give. So wisdom and clarity are my usual prayer requests. Nice right.
OK, so what do I do with the anger, frustration, and hurt. I begged for it to go away for that I would have clarity. You cannot make wise decisions without clarity and you cannot have clarity if you are always angry, mean, mad, and moody.
Having those feelings are not wrong. They are part of life. It is what you do with those feelings and how you handle them that makes a difference. It all comes down to choices. You are ultimately responsible for your own actions.
The biggest key to understanding if you made a mistake and are learning from it comes in repenting. Did you feel remorse? Are you sorry for what you did? Have you apologized to the right people?
Making mistakes is human. How we handle our mistakes is our character. Own up to your responsibility. Be a man of integrity, honesty, and self respect.
Do What's Right - Be Your Best - with God's help!!!!
Are you overwhelmed?
Have you been knocked down?
