There was once a man whose private boat capsized on the high sea. He luckily swam to  an island where no body lives. Though stranded he continued to live while praying every day for God to send him a helper.

Months passed, no helper shew up. He felt disappointed and thought there was no God anywhere and learned how to survive on the island. To keep safe from wild animals and the cold weather, he constructed a hut where he stored up some food item he scavenge from the island.

 Much to his dismay, one day after hunting for food and returning back to his hut, he saw that his little hut has burnt along with everything else he owned, he only met the smoke. Unfortunately the only thing he had left were the clothes on him. consumed with anger, he raged and cried loud and threw his fist into the air, cursing and yelling; "Oh God how could you do this to me,I’ve been  saying prayers everyday for months to be rescued from this plight, no rescuer shew up  and now to worsen the scenario, everything  I had got burnt! How could you do this to me! Why did you let this happen?”

Just shortly after he has given up all hopes and sat idly,he looked up and caught a sight of a ship coming in his direction. He was later rescued and as they were heading back to land he  asked the captain, “How were you able to find me?”

The captain answered and said, “We were voyaging across the ocean when we noticed the smoke going up. We decided to trail and when we did, we found you!”.


In life we are going to be confronted with challenges, problems, and disasters. But always  keep in mind that  God sees and hear your prayers. Sometimes the situation you termed worse could only be a blessing in disguise. 

 Even if you have lost anything, God is the reason you have not lost everything; he must leave you with something to thank him of.
 Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all.” Psalms 34:17-19
 It doesn't take time, it only takes God.


  1. Good lesson. It is all attitude. Accept everything as it is. We have a saying - be happy in the situation in which god has created for you. ( Don't curse)

  2. Many thanks for the comment, you are always welcome.
