I love cake and I eat it in moderation! Cake has helped me to love life through the ups and the downs. I have learned that when you think about the ingredients in a cake, you see life through a different lens. First, to make a cake we must have cooking oil but if you ate it alone, it wouldn’t taste too good. Secondly, the cake will need some raw eggs, but if you ate them alone, they won’t taste too good either. Thirdly, the cake has to have some baking soda and some flour. However, if you ate both of those alone, they probably won’t taste too good as well.
Think about it, all those things alone don’t taste good; but when they are put together the right way, they make a wonderful and delicious cake!
God works the same way. Many times we wonder why God allows us to go through such bad and difficult times. But God knows when He put these things all in His order, they always work for good! Therefore, we just have to accept what God allows and trust that God will take all of our bad and good times, mix them altogether and 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. (NIV)
So from now on when you read the ingredients for a cake, remember it’s just like a sweet recipe for life.
