Lemons And Lemonade
The latter was the biggest problem which sure left us with a sour taste in our mouths at first. However, that is just the first bite. After that you find ways to sweeten the pill and make tasty lemonade so to speak.
Even though we encounter many obstacles, pitfalls, and have to fend off lots of fiery darts, there is always a solution. What that is may not always be clear right of the bat, but it will reveal itself in time.
After having set out a course we expect things to go accordingly. That doesn't necessarily mean it will; God knows best and He will guide and lead.
We need to have faith and ought to be prepared to adapt and go the different way He shows us to take. It might take a little longer than the short cut we had in mind, but at least we know it will turn out for the best.
The best part of it all is that even throughout all those trials God gives blessings galore!
My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.
