When Life gives you lemons…
It is not if, but when life gives you lemons. Everyone has days of discouragement, challenge and confusion. There are times, more often than not, that try our patience, wonder, and faith.
Sometimes it is encouraging to hear similar stories from others who were dealt tough hands and/or thrown curveballs in life. We tend to use these allegories or cliches to describe times in life, but it is really just what happens in life.
It is true that God operates everything with purpose & every event & detail of life does matter to God.
In When God Makes Lemonade, Don Jacobson shares stories that are meant to amaze & encourage the reader, who also is thrown life curveballs at times.
Jacobson is sympathetic in understanding that the stories he shares relate directly to the reader in some way, shape, or form. The stories range from humorous to gut-wrenching and are meant to bring joy, faith, hope & love in the midst of your batch of lemons.
God is able to take sour circumstances and make the finished product really sweet. This is what Jacobson believes and this is why the stories are shared openly.
This book will be a great addition to your bookshelf to peruse from time to time so that you can gain encouragement, support & perspective in those seasons of life that seem sour.
