Shipwreck Survivor…

8 Dec

The only survivor of a shipwreck who was washed up on a small island, uninhabited island. Prayed fervently for God to rescue him and every day he scanned the horizon for help but none seem 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 and soon there was nothing left. The worst had happened and everything was lost. He was stunned with disbelief, grief and anger. “God, how could you do this to me?” He cried, 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.”We saw your smoke signal”, they replied. What would have happened if this hut had not gotten burnt? Where would his “rescue miracle smoke” have come from? Its easy to get discouraged when things are going bad, but we shouldn’t lose hope, bcos God is at work in our lives, even in the midst of pain and suffering. Remb this the next time your “hut” seems to be buring to the ground. It just may be a smoke signal that summons the grace of God bcos he is faithful. No matter how 2011 has been, never forget: God is too faithful to fail, hold on and keep the faith. Share this with a friend bcos you never know who feels like their “hut” is on fire! Peace!
