Dying Man’s Daily Journal – Explaining life

I just received in this email and it really does make a lot of sense if we just allow our selves to really think about it. 

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. 

Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance!

    Thanks, Bill.

    This was just what I needed to read today. I’m struggling with faith at the moment in the wake of losing a friend to a three year battle with anorexia. Try as I might, I can’t understand the choices that she made, or why God would let her make those choices. Thinking along those lines I get to ‘Well, if she could make those choices, then there can’t be a God!’ Ridiculously angry most of the time- and anger really isn’t me.

    So, I’m attempting to blog my way through it and offer support to others who have lost an online friend.

    Thanks for providing me with what I needed to read today,

    With all best wishes,


    Hi Casey. I am sorry to hear of the lose of your friend. I find it so very confusing when we get into things about our will (free will) and God’s will.
    If my posting provided you with anything good and positive today I am so glad. I will be over for a visit.

    This is a great reminder. This is similar to my belief that we should look at the big picture in life instead of just focusing only on the details that stresses us out.

    Noel, I totally agree with you. If we can keep the big picture in mind it does make many of the small details become exactly, that small and insignificant little annoyances. Just seems so hard to do while in the midst of one. But, I do keep working at it.

    Life is indeed a mix of things, good and bad. Letting yourself be baked in God’s cake sounds like a good idea to me. Every Blessing

    hi Freda, really could there be a better place for us to be than in God’s cake of life.

    Yep–those things in and of themselves…..ick.

    Toss ’em all together and end up with a cake–a whole different story.
    Ain’t that just how it goes.
    Typical human response to look at things as being separate and not simply a piece of the whole……

    I’m guilty of being human, I guess.
    Nice to know I’m not alone! 🙂
