Life Is Like A Homemade Cake

Morning Story and Dilbert

Vintage Dilbert – February 3, 2002

A little boy is telling his Grandma how “everything” is going wrong: school, family problems, and severe health problems in the family. 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,” she says. “Yuck” says the boy.

“Then how about a couple raw eggs?”

“Gross, Grandma!” he replies.

“Would you prefer some flour then? Or maybe some baking soda?” she asks.

“Grandma, those are all yucky!” he replied.

To which Grandma replies: “Yes, all those things seem to taste bad all by themselves. But when they are mixed together in the right amounts and the right manner, they make a delicious cake!”

She continued, “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!”

    • Hey Mark, It’s great to hear from you!!! I hope you are doing well? Take Care my Friend and God Bless 🙂 Kenny T


  1. Thank you. 🙂 after a depressing day at work that was something I needed to hear.


  2. I have had 3 horrible days (and nights) and this helps but the tears won’t stop… God has a plan and purpose…we just aren’t privy to see the masterpiece until much later and sometimes we never get to see it while on this earth. What a great way to see things. Thank you. I needed this, too.

    Hey Kenny, sorry to go against the flow – cant seem to stop myself… but I’m not so sure God is in the business of mixing lifes ingredients together like that. But, He is good at working all things together, He has produced but one ingredient for our lives “the blood of Christ” thats it, just one thing in the mixture. Anything else that comes along is overcome because we grab hold of the work of Christ. sorry to be a pain… cheers G


    • If there is any pain, this is the kind I like!!! Take Care and God Bless 🙂 Thanks for your response!! Kenny T

    I loved this post from “Morning Story & Dilbert” so much I wanted to share it. I’ve often been asked if I could go back in time and change one thing in my life, what would it be. I honestly don’t think I’d change one thing…the mistakes and hard times we experience mold and shape us into who we are today. It’s in those “yucky” moments that we become the person God is making us.

    “Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything… Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him.” – James 1: 2-4,12


  5. That is so true. God is always mixing things up just right for us. Even if we don’t see it. 🙂
