Whether it’s after a life-changing experience like graduation when we have no clue what to do with our lives OR whether it’s after a seemingly mundane moment that happens when we bite into that amazing Chipotle burrito for the first time ever and we question where our lives would have be if someone would have just introduced us to Chipotle earlier in life — we always ask our selves, “What is life?”
Life is whatever you choose to do with it, and frankly, when life gives you lemons, it’s YOUR CHOICE to decide how to use them:
you could be bitter (pun intended) that you got lemons and throw them at people.
At the end of the day, YOUR lemons are YOUR choice.
- Those are moments or gifts God is giving YOU because they best fit YOU. The were designed to fit in YOUR HANDS.
- If I’m not there, DON’T DO IT! Clearly, I want to be there when someone gets hit by a lemon, cause I’m pretty sure that’s hilarious.
On a more serious note, here’s the thing with life though: no matter what choice you make with those lemons, you will never be able to change what those lemons are. You can’t change the fact that those lemons will be lemons.
- You can alter them like the meringue to try and make them taste better, but that doesn’t change the fact that they still started as lemons.
- You can throw them at people because you are bitter you got them, but the person that gets them will undoubtedly know that they just got hit by lemons. (And truthfully, they will probably know what to do with them even though you chose to throw them away.)
Obviously, I’m not talking about lemons anymore. I’m talking about the gifts that God gives us, and the “blessings in disguise” that we far too often shortchange because they don’t look like the blessings we asked for.
Life consists of God constantly giving himself to you in ways that you can never truly measure up to in your humanity, BUT because God is continually giving Himself to us, life is all about what we decide to do with Him.
This isn’t suppose to be some super theological blog-post, but I feel it is something someone needs to hear, even if it just myself.
Life can be:the greatest thing, if you live it for God
the worst ever if you run away from Him.
