What Did I Do To Deserve This?

WHAT DID I DO TO DESERVE THIS?

Have you ever wondered: "WHAT DID I DO TO DESERVE THIS?" Or how about this one: "Why did God do this to me?" Well join the club. But try this on for a bit of explanation:

         A daughter is telling her mother how everything in her life is going bad...she's failing algebra, her boyfriend dropped her and her best friend is moving away. While she is whining, her mother happens to be baking a cake and asks the daughter if she would like a snack and the daughter replies, "Absolutely, Mom, I love your cakes."

         "Here, have some cooking oil," her mother offers.

         "Yuck," says the daughter.

         "Well, then, how about a couple of raw eggs," Mom asked?

         "Gross, Mom," the daughter answers.

         "Would you like a cup full of flour, then? Or how about trying some baking soda?"

         "Mom...those are all yucky!"

         To which the mother replies, "Yes...I agree, all those things seem bad by themselves. But when you put them together in the right way and bake them they make a delicious cake."

         GOD WORKS IN THE SAME KIND OF A WAY! Too many times we wonder why He would allow us to go through bad things and tough times. But God knows that when He puts these things all in His order, they always work out for good! Trust Him!

         GOD IS CRAZY ABOUT YOU! He sends you good things...flowers in the spring time and a gorgeous sunrise every morning. Whenever you want to talk to Him, He listens. HE CAN LIVE ANYWHERE AND EVERYWHERE IN THIS UNIVERSE... BUT HE CHOSE TO LIVE IN YOUR HEART AND LIFE!

         "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" (Romans 8:28).
