When God Makes Lemonade

WHEN GOD MAKES LEMONADE is a collection of 68 short, but true stories about people who have experienced some trying situations.   The author uses the idea, of turning our troubles into positives.   God will take our problems, troubles, and hard times and use them as a teaching or learning process to help grow and stretch us.   Don Jacobson has shown his readers this, in his book When God Makes Lemonade.
Some stories made me smile, some made me laugh, and many made me cry.  But they all had one element in common...they changed how I looked at hard situations and tragedy in my own life
These short stories written by real people teach us all and encourage us that even though we can't always see the good in our troubles, God uses life changing experiences so we might encourage and help others out along the way.
Don Jacobson begins the book with his own personal story of just how God walked with him when his life was in jeopardy.  Picking up his shotgun and taking a spare moment to venture off into the woods to try it out, Don was more than amazed when his gun malfunctioned and he ended up shooting himself. Failing to leave word behind to his wife of his intentions, his only companion was his dog, Big Boy. Not knowing how bad things really were, he heard the voice of God guiding him along the way.
The stories in When God Makes Lemonade are from everyday people who are surprised by unexpected sweetness in the midst of sour life circumstances.   There's no question that life gives us "lemons," like issues with health, employment, and relationships.  But when those lemons become lemonade, it's as refreshing as a cold drink on a hot summer day.
So if you're struggling beneath the weight of unemployment, depression, broken relationships, an unexpected death, or any of life's other difficulties, this book is for you.
