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. 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 this 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 in 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 order, they always work for good! We just have to trust Him and, eventually, they will all make something wonderful!"
God loves you. He sends you flowers every spring and a sunrise every morning.
Whenever you want to talk, He'll listen. He is always there and wants to reside in your heart.
