My mom sent this to me a week or so ago. There is such a great message here for each of us. So often we don't understand why. But, God does know why and we can be assured there is a reason and it is for the best. We may never know "WHY?", but God does and He has it all in His mighty and powerful and loving hands.

Have a great weekend!

We all wonder many many many times over WHY?

Sometimes we wonder, "What did I do to deserve this?" or "Why did God have to do this to me?" Here is a wonderful explanation! A daughter is telling her Mother how everything is going wrong, she's failing algebra, 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 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 good! We just have to trust Him and, eventually, they will all make something wonderful!

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.

How true. I remember asking why so often and after everything was said and done, I could look back and TOTALLY see why. It's amazing how God works.

Thanks for sharing this. Romans 8:28 came to mind :). God is always in control. We don't need to know why; we just need to trust and obey.
