My life seems to be in a turmoil so much of the time anymore. I know that what with all that our family has had with our John this last 9 months has been very stressful and it has effected our health in many ways, but thankful that I am doing better, even with the breaks in arm/shoulder/elbow and my wrist driving me up a wall, God is still on the throne.
Without Him, we wouldn't make it at all, He tests us to see if we come thru as chaff or as gold. I some days think that I nothing but chaff all together, then He wraps His arms of love in my heart and I know that I am still worth something and He is there to teach me where to lean and let go and let Him do the guiding, and me just follow Him wherever He leads.
The road may be bumpy and full of ruts along that path that He leads me, and I may complain and wish that I had kept my mouth shut, and He just keep loving me and telling me, hang in there, the way is rough and bumpy ahead, but just let me do the leading in this tandem and you just hand on and keep pedaling.
He takes me over some very scary roads where the cliffs on one side are steep down and straight up on the other side of the road we are traveling on, and I know that with Him in the front of that tandem I can trust Him and just hang on and keep pedaling.
So, when Life hands us lemons and we want to drink it without the added sweetner, we end up with a sour look all the time, but when we make lemonade out of the sour stuff, it brings smiles and joy to the heart and our insides are refreshed because we followed the recipe that He has set forth for us to follow. "Give it all to Jesus" that is the recipe for the best lemonade of all.
