I found this story many year’s ago and thought is was a great reminder of the wisdom we glean from our grandparents. Too often we forget that as their bodies and minds weaken, they’ve traveled this road longer than we have and there is much we can learn from their wisdom and experiences. Wishing all the grandparent’s out there a blessed day.
A little boy is telling his Grandma how “everything” is going wrong. School, family problems, severe health problems, etc.. 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.” “Yuck” says the boy.
“How about a couple raw eggs?” “Gross, Grandma!”
“Would you like some flour then?” Or maybe baking soda?”
“Grandma, those are all yucky!”
To which Grandma 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! If God had a refrigerator, your picture would be on it. If He had a wallet, your photo would be in it. 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. What about the Christmas gift He sent you in Bethlehem; not to mention that Friday at Calvary? Face it, He’s crazy about you!
