The plane crashed in uninhabited island and there was only one survivor. He was desperate & prayed to God to rescue him, and hoping everyday that somebody will come to help, but none seemed forthcoming.
One day, after looking out for food, he arrived home to find his little hut in flames, with smoke rolling up to the sky. The worst had happened, and 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 survivor to his rescuers.
“We got your smoke signal,” they replied.
Moral: It’s easy to get discouraged when things are going bad, but we shouldn’t lose heart, and have trust in God. , even in the midst of pain and suffering.
Always remember that, whenever your hut seems to be burning to the ground, it just may be a smoke signal that summons the grace of God.
