A Piece of Cake

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 the daughter says, “Absolutely Mom, I love your cake.”

“Here, have some cooking oil,” her Mother offers.

“Yuck” says her daughter.

“How about a couple raw eggs?”

“Gross, Mom!”

“Would you like some flour then? Or maybe baking soda?”

“Mom, those are all yucky!”

To which the mother replies: “Yes, all those things seem bad all by themselves. But when they are 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 all 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. 

Life is a piece of cake!

My Thoughts:

Intriguing, isn’t it.  Life is made up of a multitude of moments, event, experiences, learnings, lessons, emotions, memories, etc.  Individually, some are pleasant, some are not.  Life is a mosaic.  That’s what makes it so interesting!  If life was predictable or always pleasant, what kind of life is that?  If the outcome is already known, where is the fun in that? Where is the excitement? What do we have to look forward to?   We learn from all these experiences, don’t we?  When something happens, let’s try to ask what God wants us to learn from this.
