Lisa Lesson for the Day....

Are you a mom who likes to use vivid illustrations to teach your children?  I try to but can’t always conjure up creative tidbits of wisdom to help my children think about God and His plan for their lives.  I read this recently and thought it was a great word picture of how things work in life when we trust God and His ways. 

“God’s Cake”

 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 come together to make something wonderful!

Romans 8:28 – “For we know that all things work together for the good, for those who love the Lord and are called according to His purpose.”
