God's Cake


I received this forward from a friend which I found so interesting that I just had to share it here on my blog. I hope you find it as encouraging as a found 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 was telling her Mother how everything was going wrong...
She was failing algebra, her boyfriend broke up with her and her best friend was moving away.  Meanwhile, her Mother was baking a cake and asked her daughter if she would like a snack. The daughter said,
"Absolutely Mom, I love your cakes." 
"Here, have some cooking oil," her mother offered. 
"Yuck" replied 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 replied: "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! Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance!
