When Your Hut's on Fire

I recieved this in an email today and it's so true. Sometimes; well alot of times we often look at the bad and ask why me? BUT we need to look at the bigger picture, God has a PLAN...EVERYTHING happens for a reason. God is in control and each and everything he does is for a certain reason. Although we will never know, we just have to have faith and follow the path that leads us to our own "plan".

Here is the email:

The only survivor of a shipwreck was washed up on a small, uninhabited island. He prayed feverishly for God to rescue him. Every day he scanned the horizon for help, but none seemed forthcoming.. Exhausted, he eventually managedto build a little hut out of driftwood to protect him from the elements, and tostore his few possessions. One day, after scavenging for food, he arrived hometo find his little hut in flames, with smoke rolling up to the sky. He felt the worst had happened, and everything was lost. He was stunned with disbelief, grief, and anger. He cried out, "God! How could you do this to me?" 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 of his rescuers. "We saw your smoke signal," they replied.

The Moral of This Story: 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 our 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.
