Yesterday I was cooking a simple hot cake for my kids. As I was placing the ingredients I remembered myself when I was in College my Mom would love me to bake a chocolate mayonnaise cake when there are special occasions on their friends home.
But before having a delicious chocolate cake you would need flour, baking powder, mayonnaise, eggs, baking soda etc. Eaten individually, each is distasteful and bitter. But when baked together these ingredients becomes into a delicious cake.
The past years have given me too much pain that I can’t sometimes imagine and asked God why. But now moving on to this new year like making a simple cake it made me realize that in everything no matter how distasteful and unpleasant those experiences are God will blend them together for good.
Every pain or problem is a character building opportunity. In every trouble it produces patience. And patience produces character. Our circumstances in life are temporary it just comes and go, but your character will last forever.
In every trial I learned to stand up not only for my kids but for myself as well. Going through tough times gave me the strength to look at it as a learning process. Everything that has been going on in my life now is just a part of my growth to maturity. In everything even how hard and painful it is it has it’s own purpose.
Now that another new year has started it is also a time of letting go of those pains and smiling and embracing for the new changes and better beginnings in my life.I am ready to accept those changes it is time to move on...
