One day, a man decided to travel by ship with his companions. While in the middle of their journey, the boat started to sink. Everyone tried to escape by swimming but it was all in futility. All drowned save this man who succeeded in clinging to a floating object. With the effect of strong winds, this took him very far, to a small island where there were no men or animals, just a few insects. With the sweat of his brow, he managed to build a small box completely made of straw. He stayed there for several days eating only fruits and began to get used to his new life of suffering (even if we do not get used to it). He eventually started to lose all hope of seeing his family again any day.
Every night he lit a fire in front of his house to provide warmth for himself. During one evening, as usual, he lit the fire. He stayed there for a long period of time until he dozed off. Late in the night, he was awakened by an overwhelming and an intense heat: It was his straw hut that had caught fire. He cried badly, accusing and blaming God, shouting, “Oh God, what have I done to you to hurt me so? You segregated me from my family to bring me to this deserted island, then you killed all my companions and now you let my hut burn. Why are you so hard on me? It is better to die because I am tired of living in this kind of suffering!”
But at dawn, he saw a small boat coming towards his direction. When the boat landed, he ran straight for the captain and said to him in a surprise an astonishment, “Captain, how did you get here?” No boat can get here unless he gets lost. ” The captain replied, “In the night we saw a fire and we thought it was a burning boat, and we did not arrive immediately because the journey was long. We thought that you used the fire in order for us to find you. “The man cried, fell on his knees and asked God for forgiveness, and he got boarded the boat and went home and reunited with his family.
LESSON: God has countless ways of solving our problems. You can lose a job and think that God has forsaken you when He wants to give you a better job. Your friends can leave you, do not believe that the LORD has rejected you, He wants to keep you away from bad friends. Do not curse your God even if you suffer, keep the faith and hope, He will act.
