    The only survivor of a shipwreck was washed up on a small, uninhabited
    island. He prayed feverishly for God to rescue him. Every day he scanned
    the horizon for help, but none seemed forthcoming. Exhausted, he
    eventually managed to build a little hut out of driftwood to protect him
    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. He felt the worst had happened, and
    everything was lost. He was stunned with disbelief, grief, and anger. He
    cried out, 'God! How could you do this to me?' Early the next day, he was
    awakened by the sound of a ship 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.

    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 our
    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
