I received this lovely email from a very dear friend in Sacramento California.
I just had to share this. I thought it was so delightful.
Isn't it wonderful to think even the yuck in our life just like making a cake can turn out yummy!?
I know it seems strange to relate Gods amazing love and grace and plan this way.
The out come is oh so Delicious! It doesn't work out for the Gods good.
Hope you enjoy this little tid-bit as much as I did.
May all your troubles turn into a yummy piece of cake fit for the King of Kings!
God's CakeThis is about the best thing I've ever read as an explanation. We all wonder many many many times over WHY?
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.
Do you find positive ways to deal with life's little troubles or what do you do to get through?
