A Piece of Cake: An Inspirational Story

A Piece of Cake
(Author Unknown)

A daughter was telling her mother how everything had been going wrong. “I’m failing algebra, my boyfriend broke up with me, and my best friend is moving away,” she shared.

Her mother, while listening to her daughter, was baking a cake. She looked up and asked, “Honey, would you like a snack?”  “Absolutely Mom, I love your cake,” she replied.

Her mother said, “Here, have some cooking oil.”

“Yuck” said 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, “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 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!

Hope your day is a “piece of cake!”

Romans 8:28 (NLT2) “And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to His purpose for them.”

In His love,
