Baking a Cake
A very ill little boy was telling his Grandma how "everything" was
going wrong...school was too hard, family problems other than his
illness, his severe pain, just all the hardships he was going through.
Meanwhile, Grandma was baking a cake. She asked the child if he would
like a snack, which of course he does. "Here. Have some cooking oil."
"Yuck," said the boy. "How about a couple of raw eggs?" "Gross, Grandma."
"Would you like some flour then? Or maybe baking soda?" "Grandma, those
are all yucky!" To which the Grandma replied: "Yes, Sweetheart, 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 the yucky stuff will make of our lives something wonderful!"
