Stranded On A Deserted Island

Stranded On A Deserted Island

A young man named Thomas was alone on his boat when a big storm rose up. His boat capsized. He swam to shore and found himself alone on a deserted island. As the weeks passed, Thomas became so miserable, so distraught. He didn't think he would ever be found. He prayed and prayed, but the heavens seemed silent. Just when he tought it couldn't get any worse, his thatched-roof hut caught fire.

Thomas sat there weeping as his shelter went up in flames. It was like pouring salt on his wounds.
"God, I give up," he said. " I ask You to help me, but one bad thing after another happens."

He was so down, so discouraged. then, about an hour later, a Coast Guard rescue boat pulled up to the beach. Thomas could not believe it. He was thrilled. "How in the world did you find me?" He asked. "We saw the smoke coming from the signal fire you built," They said.

The point in this story is sometimes what looks like a disappointment is simply God getting us in position for a rescue! You may feel defeated because your hurtting today. But instead of getting negative and bitter, why don't you take a different perspective? Believe that God will somehow, someway, turn the pain to your advantage and change your life to a great advantage. Have faith and keep praying. He doesn't like to see anyone suffer.

Joel 2:25 "I will repay you for the years the locusts have eaten .
The LORD says, "I will give you back what you lost to the swarming locusts, the
hopping locusts, the stripping locusts, and ... I will restore to you the years ...

Having Faith in our Heavenly Father is very important. He will turn things around for you.

  • Tis true DeAnn. God sometimes leads us in a direction we don't want to go in, but it's because we don't know what's on the other side, but He does.  Obedience is better than sacrifice.  It takes time and sacrifice to build a business.  Great article.  Thanks for sharing.  Liked and Shared.
