LESSON OF THE WEEK : DO NOT BE DISCOURAGED..


The only survivor of a shipwreck 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. 
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 stung with grief and anger. "God, how could you do this to me!" he cried.

Early the next day, however, 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.

Hmmmmm what a great lesson, you see most times 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 next time your little hut is burning to the ground- - it just may be a smoke signal that summons the grace of God.




Ooops TGIF.... weekend mood activated..

  1. Wow...thanks for this lesson. Most times we don't understand why certain things we think are 'bad' happen...if only we knew what's next on God's agenda.
