A little boy is telling his Grandma how everything is going wrong: school, family problems, and severe health problems in the family. Meanwhile, Grandma is baking a cake. She asks her grandson if he would like a snack, which of course he does.
Here, have some cooking oil, she says. Yuck says the boy.
Then how about a couple raw eggs?
Gross, Grandma! he replies.
Would you prefer some flour then? Or maybe some baking soda? she asks.
Grandma, those are all yucky! he replied.
To which Grandma replies: Yes, all those things seem to taste bad all by themselves. But when they are mixed together in the right amounts and the right manner, they make a delicious cake!
She continued, 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!
