If life serves you lemons you are encouraged to make lemonade. Words often repeated but they are easier said than done. Very few people are ever able to pick themselves up by their own bootstraps. The truly successful will tell you that they had a source of help. When, through our own fault or fate, we are taken down the path best forgotten, turning to that source can bring miraculous restoration. Believing in a power greater than yourself is the beginning of knowledge.
Having a relationship with the source of that power ignites the potential within that can survive the bombardment of whatever life throws at us. It is the beginning that leads to a fulfilled life. If we are attuned to the will of God we can use our experiences as stepping-stones to achieve a higher living. The Bible unveils God's message for all our circumstances while good people live the examples He would have us follow.
