The 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.

One day, after scavenging for food, he arrived home to find his little

Hut in flames, with smoke rolling up to the sky. 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 that was approaching the island. It had

Come to rescue him.

"How did you know I was here?" he asked his rescuers.

"We saw your smoke signal," they replied.

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

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.
