Don’t taste the Ingredients, wait for the Cake!

I don’t know who wrote this but hats off!  A buddy sent it to me this morning.

Sometimes we wonder:  “What did I do to deserve this or why did God have to let this happen to me?”

Here is a wonderful explanation.

A daughter is telling her mother how everything is going wrong, she’s failing her grades, her boyfriend broke up with her , her best friend is moving away and life was just knocking her down.

Her mother was busy baking a cake and asked the daughter if she would like a piece.

“Absolutely Mom,” the daughter says, “I love your cake”.

“Here, have some cooking oil”, the mother offers.

“Yuck”, says the daughter.

“How about a couple of raw eggs?”

“Gross Mom!”

“Would you like some flour then?  Or maybe some baking soda?”

“Mom, all of those are really yucky!”

“Yes, all those things taste bad by themselves but when put together in the right way, they make a wonderfully, delicious cake.  God works in 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 together in the right order, they always work for good.  We just have to trust Him to 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 will listen.  He can live anywhere in the universe, but He chose your heart.

Life may not be the easy ride we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well make the best of what we have, knowing that we can trust Him for the end result.
