What's the old adage? "When life gives you lemons, make lemonade." Some people even go as far as to say "add salt and tequila". Maybe I would've chanted that from my soapbox in my heathenistic days, but now I'm more apt to cry out, "build a stand and sell some lemonade!"
Rediscovery - Rejuvenation - Rededication - Redemption
God has taken the words that were meant to hurt me and transformed it into a platform where my testimony can be an encouragement to others through my podcasts and blogs. Where He uses the curses hurled at me to His glory, Where He blessed me with the tools and resources to build my own lemonade stand to begin the process of healing and forgiveness through my podcasts and blogs.
You are not alone! It's time to take the power back from those that hurt you.
Joseph built a lemonade stand. Esther built a lemonade stand. Daniel built a lemonade stand.
"You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done..."
~ Genesis 50:20 (NIV)
Are you ready to transform the pain, hurt, and betrayal of others into God's glory? Are you ready to stop settling for mere lemons and build something that will sustain you?
"It's time wash off those dirty lemons. It's time to knead those hard lemons in order to get the most juice out of them. It's time to cut those lemons and pick out the seeds. It's time to squeeze them as hard as you can to get all the tart juice out. It's time to add fresh water to the juice to make enough lemonade. It's time to pour in plenty of sugar but still, have just a bit of tartness. Now...go sell your lemonade!"
