I received an email over the weekend from my dear friend Michaela. The title of the email was "God's cake". Michaela is an accomplished cake designer and to say that I am wowed by her creations is an understatement. So it was fitting that this email came from her; a traveling forward of an email that seems to speak to the hearts of many ... and I hope it speaks to you, as much as it did to me.
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
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.
Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance!
