I have shared in the past I have a special place for what I consider my treasures. They could be a tiny trinket, a quote or most anything that makes my heart happy. Today, it is a poem that I received in an email from a dear friend…..
God’s Cake−A must-read poem!
Sometimes we wonder, “What did I do to deserve this?” or “Why did God have to do this to me?” Here is a wonderful explanation!
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.”
“Yuck,” says her daughter.
“How about a couple raw eggs?”
“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 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!
“God is crazy about you. He sends you flowers every spring and a sunrise every morning. Whenever you want to talk, He’ll listen. He can live anywhere in the universe, and He chose your heart.”
So maybe just for today don’t waste any time on thinking about what did I do to deserve this. Begin to embrace each moment of your day recognizing the beautiful tapestry you are creating called ….. your life.
