Lemons!

This image shows a whole and a cut lemon.

When given a lemon . . .
we’re suppose to make lemonade
it’s a saying I’ve always heard
but, not one I’ve always made.

You see, I don’t like lemonade,
unless it’s sweeten by God’s grace
then the sourness of this life
I am able to peel away and face.

For what is lemonade,
it cannot quench the real thirst
unless we stir in the goodness
of Jesus’ love ~ into it first.

His love takes out the tartness,
the bitterness and the acidity
it unpeels the sin and grime
pares back the heart’s frigidity.

It removes the hardened core,
it softens up the outer peeling
His loves gets right to the soul
for a refreshing ~ inner healing.

So, if you are anything like me,
and lemonade you abhor . . .
the next time you get a lemon
sweeten it with the love of the Lord!

Jesus Is the Salt of Life ~

Jesus is the Salt of Life ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Lord ~ You’re the salt of my life,
You add to it so much flavor
I’m so grateful that I made You
my Lord and eternal Savior.

Everything else around me,
seems so very bittersweet
You are the only One I know
who makes me feel complete.

When I think of Your great love,
I find to You I am indebted
I’m so thankful that Your grace
in my heart is forever embedded.

Lord, You are the salt of my life,
all Your goodness I truly savor
I’m so glad You are the One . . .
that gives my life so much flavor!
