When Your Hut’s On Fire

The only survivor of a
shipwreck was washed up on a small, uninhabited island. He prayed
feverishly for God to rescue him. Every day he scanned the horizon for
help, but none seemed forthcoming. Exhausted, he eventually managed to
build a little hut out of driftwood to protect himself from the
elements, and to store his few possessions. One day, after scavenging
for food, he arrived home to find his little hut in flames, with smoke
rolling up to the sky. He felt the worst had happened, and everything
was lost. He was stunned with disbelief, grief, and anger. He cried
out, ‘God! How could you do this to me?’
 
Early the next day, he was
awakened by the sound of a ship approaching the island! It had come to
rescue him! ‘How did you know I was here?’ asked the weary man of his
rescuers. ‘We saw your smoke signal,’ they
replied.
 
The Moral of This Story:
It’s easy to get discouraged when things are going bad, but we
shouldn’t lose heart, because God is at work in our lives, even in the
midst of our pain and suffering.
 
Remember that the next
time your little hut seems to be burning to the ground. It just may be
a smoke signal that summons the Grace of
God.
