THE BURNING HUT

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.

If only we would learn to look to God regardless of our circumstances and cease to blame Him for things we don’t understand. Our lives our a large puzzle which God is piecing together and only He has the picture. I love the fact that I can trust Him with all of me, every hope, dream and moment of my life. How great is my God! Cheers!

It’s funny how you can only connect the dots looking in hindsight. That story was a great reminder to trust.
