"God's Cake"

I just read this and I loved it!

Sometimes we wonder, "What did I do to deserve this?" or "Why did God have to do this to me?" Here is a wonderful explanation! A Daughter is telling her Mother how everything is going wrong, she's failing algebra, her boyfriend broke up with her and her best friend is moving away.

Meanwhile her Mother is baking a cake and asks her Daughter if she would like a snack, and her Daughter says "Absolutely Mom, I love your cake!"

"Here, have some cooking oil", her Mother offers. "Yuck" says her Daughter.

How about a couple of raw eggs?" "Gross Mom!"

"Would you like some flour then?" "Or maybe some baking soda?" "Mom those are all yucky!"

To which the Mother replies, "Yes, all those things seem bad by themselves, but when they are all put together in the right way, they make a wonderfully delicious cake!

God works the same way. Many times we wonder why he would let us go through such bad and difficult times, but God knows that when he puts these things in His order they always work for good. We just have to trust Him and eventually they will all make something wonderful!

God is crazy about you. He sends you flowers every spring and a sunrise every morning.

Whenever you want to talk, He'll listen. He can live anywhere in the Universe, and He chose your heart.
