A little boy was telling his Grandma how “everything” is going wrong. School, family problems, severe health problems, etc. Meanwhile, Grandma was baking a cake. She asks her grandson if he would like a snack, which, of course, he does.
“Here, have some cooking oil.”
“Yuck” says the boy.
“How about a couple raw eggs? ”
“Would you like some flour then? Or maybe baking soda?”
“Grandma, those are all yucky!”
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!”
Romans 8:28, “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” – Scriptures New International Version (NIV)
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.
