Inspirational Story: Is your hut burning?


eMediNexus    14 November 2017

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. He 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.
