I will bring you CAKE...

There was once a little boy of 2 years old...who LOVED cake, he didnt just love cake like most children he LOVED cake. One day his mother was making a Red Velvet cake for some of her friends and little Cameron looked at his mom and said...mom I want CAKE...his mom explained that the cake was for some friends and he could not have any of the cake...well this displeased little Cameron immensley but for a bit he went on about his business...but soon he was back and told his mom...MOM I want CAAAKKEEE...so she then cut him off a small sliver so that she could cover up the missing part...but this only fuled his fire for cake...so the mom decided lets go out and distract little Cameron...so they went outside and shortly thereafter the phone rang...so mom's on the phone chatting when she hears the door close behind her...she turns around just in time to see little Cameron LOCK THE DOOR...she screams"Cameron dont you touch that cake"...little 2 year old Cameron uses all his little 2 year old might to slide a chair across the room to the counter where the cake sits...he climbs up on the chair and looks back at his mom...who once again screams"Dont you touch that cake"...Cameron takes the lid off the cake plate and is just staring at the cake...there is only inches of air between him and the cake...all the cake he could ever want...Cameron looks back at his mom...who by now is just watching and waiting...Cameron looks once again at the cake then slowly picks up the lid and places it back on the cake...climbs down from his chair...walks straight to the door and lets his mom in...now what do you suppose mom did...she gave that little two year old the BIGGEST piece of CAKE he could ever eat...he had cake from head to toe...
If we will be obediant God will bring us more CAKE than we can imagine...

Sometimes it sure it hard to put the lid back on the cake without touching it at all...God will honor that obediance...beyond anything we can imagine...I am banking on that!!

Thank you for speaking to me Lord through this story...somedays I am sliding my chair up to the cabinet to get the cake...somedays it truly is so hard to put the lid back on that cake and walk away and trust and wait...but I believe in you and I know you belive in me...together we can do this.

I love you Jesus, my savior, my victory.

Literally standing before temptation is never easy. How funny/sad that satan is so creative knowing just our individual weaknesses to place before us and just the right time. Sometimes it is easy to walk away. Usually when we have seen the end of that road and know it is unwelcomeing. But when it is a road we have not experienced or experienced and liked and it stand before us untouched it is difficult beyond words. That little boy in the story made such a choice. Never knowing that he would be so greatly rewarded. We know we will be rewarded and yet we find it almost impossible sometimes. You have left your cake untouched. Keep standing for you know....and I and others are proud of you! You are loved!!
