Lemon = orange juice

I have noticed lately on social media a rash of "why me lord" "poor me" etc etc type post. When bad decisions are made you have to live with the results. Getting "right with God" does not allow you to not reap what you sow. As the old folks say, you must lay in the bed that you made! You cant buy lemons and when you squeeze them ask God to turn it to orange juice!!

its really all up to God what He handles...sometimes God is VERY merciful and does the seemingly impossible...sometimes ya just gotta lay in the bed you make and hold on to His grace during the process.
