The Little Grass Hut

The Lord of hosts is with us; The God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah – Psalm 46:7 (NKJV)

The following story is a wonderful reminder that God is always there for us, even when we feel He is distant. Enjoy!

The only survivor of a shipwreck was washed up on a small, uninhabited island.
 
He prayed feverishly for GOD to rescue him, and 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 himself 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.
 
The worst had happened! Everything was lost!
 
He was stunned with disbelief, 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.

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 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.

    time now and finally got the courage to go ahead and give you
    a shout out from Houston Tx! Just wanted to tell you keep up the
    good work! I visited several blogs but the audio
    quality for audio songs present at this website is really wonderful.

  2. Ahaa, its pleasant dialogue regarding this paragraph here at this blog, I have read all that,
    so at this time me also commenting at this place.
    This is a topic which is near to my heart…
    Cheers! Where are your contact details though?
    I’ve been browsing online greater than three hours nowadays,
    but I never discovered any fascinating article like yours.
    It’s pretty price enough for me. In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers made just right content as you did, the
    web will likely be much more helpful than ever before.
