Family Matters 7-10-18

A daughter is telling her Mother how everything is going wrong in her life. She is 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, no that wouldbe terrible!”

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! What a great lesson for us. Even though things go wrong, with God as our help, we can take those situations, mix them with faith in the Word of God, and come out stronger and make something great out of our life.
