A ship got stuck in a storm and sank into the deep ocean—only one of the passengers survived by holding onto a large wood piece. The waves took him to an island.
After checking the small Island, he realized he is the only person living there here. Every day he stared at the sea and prayed to God for a way of his freedom.
He begged God to let some other ships see him and rescue him. Days passed, and no boat passed. He had to make a shelter and find food. With that piece of wood which helped him to stay alive and some tree branches, he built a little protection.
This way, he would stay dry when it rained and had a proper place to call home. He made some fire to cook the animals and fish he hunt.
When he went to find food one day, his cooking fire got to the branches and the wood of his home and burnt everything. The smoke was high in the sky, and the survivor was devastated.
He got angry at God and said: “How could you do this to me? This shelter was all I had. Couldn’t you keep this for me? Why are you so harsh on me?”
He slept on the sand with disappointment and sadness.
He woke up with the sound of a ship’s whistle. The little boats were at the beach to save him.
The survivor asked the rescuers, shockingly: “How did you know I was here on this Island?”
They said: “We saw the smoking you sent to inform us someone is trapped on this Island.”
When everything goes wrong in our lives, all the bad days and months that we pass by force; We should stay strong and keep our faith because we know God is watching us and helping us.
