PostSubject: When your hut's on fire   Thu Feb 14, 2008 1:09 am

[size=12]]Anecdotal proof that things
happen for a reason.

When
your hut's on fire

The
only sur
vivor 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 him
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.

P. S.
You may want to consider
passing this on, because you never know who feels as if their hut is on fire
today.


God Bless
You!
