“With God I can walk through hard times in a place of peace and that peace will impact those directly around me. It starts with my choice.” Katherine Walden
Choices. In reality, they are all we have. Every day, the only thing we have total control over is our choices.
We can choose to be happy, content, at peace, experience joy, no matter the circumstances in which we find ourselves.
No, I haven’t lost my marbles. Yes, we live in a fallen world where other people’s choices can bring situations we would not have chosen for ourselves.
Nonetheless, we still have choices.
No one wants to fall flat on their back. No one wants to be ridiculed. No one wants either physical or emotional pain.
But these circumstances don’t stop us from still having choices. It’s the like the old adage, “When life sends you lemons make lemonade…with lots of sugar!”
This is what Jesus came to do – redeem life’s lemons as we listen to and follow Him in how to turn them into sweet lemonade.
Children of God, those who put their faith in Jesus as their God and Savior, guess what He does? He can save or make us whole again despite life’s lemons.
He can show us how to make choices in His strength to keep at peace when chaos reigns around us. He can show us how to have joy while enduring painful situations.
You may not like lemons; but, they do have healing properties. Make choices today to heal and be made whole.
