Grandma and the Cake

A little boy was telling Grandma how "everything" was going wrong -
school, family problems, severe health problems, etc.

Meanwhile, Grandma was baking a cake.
She asked her grandson if he would like a snack,
which of course he did.

"Here, have some cooking oil."

"Yuck" said the boy.

"How about a couple raw eggs?"

"Gross, Grandma!"

"Would you like some flour then? Or maybe baking soda?"

"Grandma, those are all yucky!"

To which the 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!"
