However, sometimes we wonder, ‘What did I do to deserve this?
‘Why did God have to do this to me? Why me?
Here is a wonderful explanation:
A daughter is telling her mother how everything is going wrong, she’s doing badly in her studies, 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 of 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 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 our good!
We just have to trust Him and, eventually, he will serve us with the best possible thing and make something wonderful.
Keep your faith, This too shall pass and stay blessed forever.
