Sometimes we ask ourselves: What did I do to deserve this?
Why does God let these things happen to me?
Here is why...
A daughter tells her mother how everything is going wrong for her; She has failed her Maths exam,
...Her boyfriend dumped her for her best friend.
In times so sad, the mother knows just the thing to cheer up her daughter... I will make a delicious cake. The mother hugs her daughter and they walk to the kitchen, while the daughter attempts to smile.
While the mother prepares the utensils and ingredients, her daughter sits across from her at the counter. The mother asks, Sweetheart, would you like a piece of the cake? Her daughter replies, Sure,mom, you know how I love cake.
Right... the mother says, Drink some of this cooking oil. Shocked, the daughter responds, What?!? Never!!!
How about a couple of raw eggs? To this the daughter responds, Are you joking?
How about a little flour? No, mom, It will make me sick!
The mother responds, All of these things are uncooked and taste bad, but if you put them together......They make a delicious cake!
God works the same way. When we ask ourselves why he makes us go through these difficult times, we dont realize what or where these events may bring us. Only He knows and he will not let us fall. We dont need to settle for the raw ingredients. Trust in Him... And we will see something fantastic come about!
God loves us so much... He sends us flowers every spring...
...He makes the sun rise every morning...
... And any time you need to talk... He is there to listen!
He can live anywhere in the universe... But He choses to live in your heart!
