I Hope Your Day is a Piece of Cake!

My dear friend, Ann, sent this to me earlier this week. I just loved the simple reminder contained in this sweet story and wanted to share it with you! Sometimes it is hard when we are in the midst of trouble to remember that He is in control; it’s hard to understand the why. All we can do, and all we are required to do is hold on to Him and trust.

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! {Romans 8:28, Jeremiah 29:11}  We just have to trust Him and, eventually, they will all make something wonderful as He knows they will!
