God Makes Lemonade by Don Jacobson - REVIEWED

About the Book: (from the publisher)
God Makes Lemonade

ue Stories that Sweeten & Inspire

I bet you could use a little good news right about now. We have just the book for you! In God Makes Lemonade™ you'll read stories from everyday folks who discover unexpected sweetness in the midst of sour circumstances.

Some of these real-life stories are laugh-out-loud funny, others are sobering, and more than a few will have you reaching for a tissue. We sure did!

But these true stories all have one thing in common: hope. There's no question that life gives us "lemons," like issues with health, employment, and relationships-truly sour circumstances we wouldn't wish on anyone. But when those lemons become lemonade, it's as refreshing as an ice-cold drink on a hot summer day.

My Thoughts:

are times in all of our lives when we wonder how God can use the circumstances for our good and His glory - much less make a bitter thing be sweet! But GOD can do this! ONLY GOD can do this! And He does it in a way and in a time that His children can recognize His hand in the circumstance and grow to love Him more and praise Him for His goodness!

This book will encourage and inspire you to look beyond your circumstance and drink in the sweetness of God's love!
