What Did I Do To Deserve This?

And we know that all things work together for good
to them that love God, to them who are the called
according to his purpose. (Romans 8:28)

Sometimes we wonder, "What did I do to deserve this?" or "Why did God allow this to happen to me?" Here is a wonderful explanation.

A daughter was telling her Mother how everything was going wrong: she"s failing algebra, her boyfriend broke up with her and her best friend is moving away. Meanwhile, her Mother was baking a cake, She asked her daughter if she would like a snack, and the daughter said, "Absolutely Mom, I love your cake."

"Here, have some cooking oil," her Mother offered. "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 which the mother replied: "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!"

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. Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance!

I hope your day is a piece of cake!
