A Piece of Cake

Sometimes we ask ourselves: What did I do to deserve this?
Why does God let these things happen to me?
Here is the explanation…

A daughter tells her mother how everything is going wrong for her. She probably failed her Math exam or her boyfriend just dumped her for her best friend.

In times so sad, a good mother knows just the thing to cheer up her daughter. ’I’ll make a delicious cake.’ In that moment the mother hugged her daughter and walked her to the kitchen, while her daughter attempts to smile.

While the mother prepared the utensils and ingredients, her daughter sat across from her at the counter. Her mother asks, ‘sweetheart, would you like a piece of cake?’

Her daughter replies, ‘sure, mom, you know I love cakes.’

‘alright’ the mother said, ‘drink some of this cooking oil.’

Shocked, the daughter responded, ‘what?!? No way!!’

‘How about a couple of raw eggs?’ To this the daughter responded, ‘Are you kidding?’

‘How about a little flour?’

‘No, mom. I’ll be sick!’

The mother responded, ‘All of these things are uncooked and taste bad. But if you put them together, they make a delicious cake!’

God works in the same way. When we ask ourselves why does he make us go through these difficult times, we don’t realize what or where these events may bring us. Only He knows and he will not let us fail. We don’t need to settle for the raw ingredients, trust in Him and see something fantastic come about!!

God loves us so much He sends us flowers every spring.

He makes the sun rise every morning.

And anything you need to talk, he is there to listen!

He can live anywhere in the universe. But He chooses to live in your heart.

Happy Moments
Praise God.

Difficult Moments
Seek God.

Quiet Moments
Worship God.

Painful Moments
Trust God.

Every Moment
Thank God.

Ahh Fay,
That analogy you cited works well
when you are baking a cake - all the separate ingredients taste blah, and you definitely don't want to taste or eat the baking powder,
as you will look like you're suffering from rabies, foaming
at the mouth.

But I made blueberry muffins the other day, which turned out very well - I make great blueberry muffins - and if I ate the blueberries by themselves,
they would still be tasty.
Although, if you use frozen blueberries, they're usually sour.

There used to be a nice blueberry
farm by our house, and when I was young, my Aunts and Cousins, would
visit, and we Aunts, Cousins, Mother, Grandmother would all go blueberrying there. Of course, we kids woud eat the blueberries off
the shrubs, but we also filled many a bucket.

Blueberry muffins are my favorite after the banana nuts muffins.

My life is like the making of a cake. So, I relate to this wrting very much.

Thank you for the link. Glad to see people praying for the Iraqi people.
