What did I do to Deserve This?

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 best friend broke up with her and her cousin 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’s ways are unique. 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!

    …… But perhaps you hate a thing and its good for you and perhaps you love things and its bad for you. Allah knows while you not know.

    That’s so true, humans have limited knowledge, they fail to see beyond the scenes.
    God who created humans, naturally know’s better about their taste. Therefor we just need to trust on Him and leave everything to him.
    After all we are humans and fail to see the ‘big picture’.

    Nature, they say, is the visible form of the Creator, All that He gives is for free to take. And He never discriminates between the sinner and the saint But we need to open our heart and mind to appreciate His glory, and compassion, Gratitude is divine.

    This is another of your great inspiring takes. This is a very powerful insight to life which is to our greatest advantage. Moreover, in taking this perspective, God is glorified. Thank you very much for this message and may the glory of God continue to overshadow you.

    Hi , Sara : Every one should trust in GOD , what ever we do and decide depend on our mined how we think right , the end every thing is good from GOD ,other than from us.

    God is always doing good but we sometimes fail to understand His doings. God is the All-Wise All-Merciful

    Oh yeah,  you never know … it may be that you hate a thing, while it is most charitable for you; and it may be that you love a thing while it is evil for you; and Allah knows and you do not know.  Then, it is possible you may hate something, and Allah
    sets in it much charity.
