God 's Cake

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, 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 wonderful!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.
I found this story on a blog and want to share it with all my Pals.
Great lesson to remember.
I will keep that in mind when I am baking a cake.

hi Pals, Now i have a confession to make. The cake in the post is not my creation...wish it was. it would only last 5 minutes flat.

Hope God makes a "cake" that good out of my life!! I think He is still beating the eggs! Perhaps some of the "ingredients" are still missing, such as my "total surrender".

Thanks for the posting Amrita.

That cake sure looks yummy.
I so looking forwards to taste the cake of my life.
Come to think about it, I am tasting a bit every day.
Serina came home safe and sound today.
That is some Christmas icing.

Yes Amrita ..I does look pretty yummy! And I am not usually a cake either.
Boy it sure would taste good too with a big scoop of cold ice cream on it!
Little Missionary Julie..That's so good about His beating the eggs still.
Just keep on hanging in there. You are passing through the fires the same as the cake had to and when you come out you will be purest gold.
Of course you already ARE gold to us, your Pilgrim brothers and sisters!! You can't see it but we can!
Felisol.... I am so glad that your princess is home for a while. Give her a real big hug from all of us. Will Ruby be amongst the guests at your Christmas home this year? If she is, you can give HER big a hug too?!!!
Love Terry
