Making Lemonade

There are days when life is a bowl of sour lemons, with no end in sight to the bleakness of our circumstances. God does not tell us to make lemonade when life hands us lemons. Nor does he say when you get to the end of your rope to tie a knot and hang on. He does not say 'meet me at the end of the tunnel when we say there is light at the end of the tunnel. No...he is in the tunnel with us.
What does God tell us to do when we've come to the bottom of our 'to do' list.
This is where we need to start everyday...

You shall fear the Lord your God. You shall serve him and hold fast to him...
Deuteronomy 10:20

...loving the Lord your God, obeying his voice and holding fast to him, for he is your life and length of days,...
Deuteronomy 30:20

The Lord is my light and salvation;
whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
Psalm 27:1

...who has kept our soul among the living and has not let our feet slip
Psalm 66:9
Hold fast to God, let go of the rope and the bowl of lemons, God is our refuge.
