God’s Cake and Sharing Scriptures For The Week

 

 

 

 

 

My Uncle from California sent this to me through email. It’s awesome! πŸ™‚

God’s Cake…

 

This is about the best thing I’ve ever read as an explanation

 

 

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: β€˜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!

β€˜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!

There are many that beg God to tell them WHY they have to go through specific things and many trials. Do you believe all things happen for a reason? I do!

God has everything planned out and knows all things before we do. For me, that is so very powerful. πŸ˜‰

Various trials and tribulations all make us much stronger than we ever, ever thought possible! They indeed make US the people we are today, having gone through this or that.

It may be sickness, it may be losing loved ones, it may even be having to go through life homeless…it could be MANY things. However, God knows before we do what lies ahead in our future.

This morning I searched for trials and tribulations in the scriptures…this is what I found. πŸ˜‰

Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.

  1. We can never see the whole picture from where we stand…we have to keep trusting and having faith in God that everything is going to come out right just like we do when we bake a cake. Love the illustration! Thanks for sharing. “I shall come forth as gold” after the trials are over and our life’s work is done.

  2. Hi Rhonda πŸ™‚ The illustration really made me stop and think. YW, and I like the scripture you ended your comment with. Thanks so much for stopping by! =)
