Smoke Signals to God

Post  goldentree on Sun 06 Apr 2008, 3:19 am

The only survivor of a shipwreck was washed up on
a small, uninhabited island. He prayed feverishly
for God to rescue him, and 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.
But then one day, after scavenging for food, he
arrived home to find his little hut in flames, the
smoke rolling up to the sky.

The worst had happened; everything was lost. Hebr /was stunned with grief and anger.]God, how
could you do this to me!
" he cried.

Early the next day, however, he was awakened by
the sound of a ship that was 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.

It is 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
pain and suffering.

Remember, next time your little hut is
burning to the ground ----it just may be a
smoke signal that summons the grace of God.

ourselves, God has a positive answer for it :
