Worth Repeating: When someone sends you lemons, digest them, eliminate the waste, and utilize the lemon for all its cleansing ability and nutrients.


Let’s think contrary to what seems common: instead of putting focus on the lemons, relationships, work, school, etc., put the focus on the Father of all, and He will put the focus on those relationships. John 15 – we are to remain in Him, stay connected with Him. Only when we stay connected with the Creator can we bear fruit.  He prunes us to make us strong. When life gets challenging, we are being pruned and weeded, so that we can bear more fruit. Apart from Him we can do nothing. How are you abiding in the Father? Are you making time to connect with Him? We find time for the things that we value. Make time with the Almighty your #1 thing.

The fear of light is what really sets us back, not failure.

Fail forward.
