When Life Hands You Lemons: Ponder the Glorious Future

by Dr. Potter’s wonderful wife, Jennifer

“Behold the days are coming,” declares the Lord,

when the plowman shall overtake the reaper

and the treader of grapes him who sows the seed;

the mountains shall drip sweet wine,

and all the hills shall flow with it.

I will restore the fortunes of my people Israel,

and they shall rebuild the ruined cities and inhabit them;

they shall plant vineyards and drink their wine,

and they shall make gardens and eat their fruit.

I will plant them on their land,

and they shall never again be uprooted

out of the land that I have given them,”

says the Lord your God.

Amos 9:13-15 (ESV)

Ponder the beautiful pictures of peace and abundance that await complete fulfillment when the Lord does indeed abundantly restore his people.  I don’t think I need to add anything to such wonderful promises and such rich imagery.  The lemons of life will indeed be wiped away.
