Thinking. God's cake

This is one of those cheesy email things that actually makes sense and helps answer the big 'why me?' questions we all ask. Thanks Linda for sending it!


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. She 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?"


"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!
