Signals

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 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
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

The Next Time Your Little Hut Is Burning To The Ground
It Just May Be A Smoke Signal That Summons The Grace Of God
