Life Is Like A Piece Of Cake!

I received an email the other day from my dear friend, Cyndi. She’s a wonderful source of encouragement and I love hearing from her. In her email she included a writing that illustrates that sometimes the most complex truths are best explained by using simple and ordinary examples. The message from this email blessed me. I hope it blesses you.      
God's 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. 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!"

Don't give up!  God is using all of the tough things you're going through
to create something beautiful!

"And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him,
who have been called according to His purpose."
Romans 8:28
Love and blessings,
