    My friend sent me this and it uplifted me. I hope it does the same for you.


    Just in case your hut is on fire...

    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 forthc! oming.. 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. 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.

    P.S. You may want to consider passing this on
    because you never know who feels their hut is on
    fire today.
