From God’s Perspective, What Is the Meaning of Turning Lemons into Lemonade?
I have no insight on God's perspective, but I suspect he chuckles a lot. My new saying is, "God looks down on me and says, 'You had to do it the hard way, again!,' and then he shakes his head and smiles.
If I were to guess, I would hope that God is happy to see us turning a problem into something positive. It would attest to our successful progression into thinking beings. It certainly seems better than wallowing in misery; although I am also a great proponet of wallowing, not in misery but in good stuff, such as wallowing in chocolate, bubble baths, etc.
I do not dare presume to know God's perspective, but I suspect He is not concerned with turning lemons into lemonade unless you mean turning sinners into saints.
Taking what you feel is negative and turning it into the positive realm of life.
Making something out of nothing, or very little or a bad situation.
So literally lemons are SOUR and in and of themselves aren't eaten as a fruit like an orange. An option for eating lemons is to create a new scenario! LEMONADE!
My favorite is when life gives you a ham bone make lima bean soup! All to say when it seems like nothing is left take what you have and make the best of it!
Taking little and making something big out a bad situation! Turn things to the positive. See the glass half full instead of half empty...
All of this is making Lemonade Out Of Lemons...making a sour situation sweet and something all together different and new!
Enjoy drinking a nice tall glass of Lemonade out of your bitter situation!

I believe that it would mean that when all things in our life go sour, we must sweeten it with the love of God and our Faith. Faith is what gets us through those rough spots and turning our focus on him will always make things change for the better.
