A Little Help From God

After a shipwreck, a man who was the lone survivor managed to reach the shore.

He asked God for help. After waiting too long for God to answer his prayers, he built himself a hut for his protection with sabotaged pieces of a shipwreck.

Few days passed by, each day he spent plenty of time looking for food and gazing at the horizon for God’s help.

One day, when he returned from his food search, he found his little hut burnt to ashes.

Losing all hope, he felt helpless and screamed in anger, “Why God? Why do you never answer my prayers?”

After a few hours, a ship reached the shore for his rescue. The man asked the captain, “How did you find me?” The captain replied, “We saw your smoke signal for help.”

The man’s faith in God’s will was restored.

Moral – Don’t lose hope because bad things are happening to you. God has his own way of working.
