When Your Hut is on Fire

"WHEN YOUR HUT'S ON FIRE... - Author known to The Ultimate Authority - As the story goes...The only survivor of a shipwreck was washed up on a small, uninhabited island. He prayed feverishly for God to rescue him. Everyday 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. 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 THE 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 might want to consider passing this on, because you never know who feels as if their hut is on fire...loves :--)x"

It's good to have goals and dreams, but while you're waiting for things to change, waiting for promises to come to pass, don't be discontent with where you are. Learn to enjoy the season that you're in--Pastor Joel Osteen

Love it! Thanks, Pat

Love it! Thanks, Pat

Acceptance. When I am disturbed, it is because a person, place, thing, or situation is unacceptable to me. I find no serenity until I accept my life as being exactly the way it is meant to be. Nothing happens in God’s world by mistake.  Acknowledge the problem, but live the solution!
