Why Me Lord?


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, and 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 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!

Is not this the message of Romans 8:28? And do we not read of such in such Bible characters as Joseph, the son of Jacob, Job and the apostle Paul?

Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here let's walk by faith, walk with the Lord and prepare for a far better one to come.

...I hope your Day is a piece of Cake!

Just so there is no confusion, I DID NOT write this, someone sent it to me and I thought it was worth sharing. I should have made this clear earlier. I am not sure who the author is but thought they did a good job!

Great example! Love that. The big picture is hard to see sometimes, but necessary for the hope that propels us forward. :)
