Grandma's Heavenly Cake
Two little boys are telling their Grandma how "everything" is going wrong: the bully at school, their Grandma's Boys parents grounded them, and they have colds.
Meanwhile, Grandma is baking a cake. She asks the boys if they would like a snack, which of course they do.
"Here. Have some cooking oil."
"Yuck," says one boy."
"How about a couple raw eggs?"
"Gross, Grandma," says the other.
"Would you like some flour then? Or maybe baking soda?"
"Grandma, those are all yucky!" they said in unison.
To which Grandma 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!"
