    :hello:GodPower in Cobweb :hello:

    During a war, a soldier was separated from his unit on an island. The fighting had been intense, and in the billowing smoke and the crossfire he had lost touch with his comrades.
    Alone in the jungle, he could hear enemy soldiers coming in his direction. Scrambling for cover, he found his way up a high ridge to several small caves in the rock. Quickly he crawled inside one of the caves.

    Although safe for the moment, he realized that once the enemy soldiers looking for him swept up the ridge, they would quickly search all the caves and would be killed.

    As he waited, he prayed, "Lord, please spare my life. Whatever will happen, I love you and trust you. Amen."

    After praying, he lay quietly listening to the enemy begin to draw close.

    He thought, "Well, I guess the Lord isn't going to help me out of this one."
    Then he saw a spider begin to build a web over the front of his cave. "Hah" he thought, "What I need is a brick wall and what the Lord has sent me is a spider web. God does have a sense of humor. "

    As the enemy drew closer he watched from the darkness of his hide out and could see them searching one cave after another.

    As they came to his, he got ready to make his last stand, but then he heard the leader of the soldiers say, "You may as well ignore looking in this cave.... if he had entered here this web would have been broken!"
    So, they left and he was delivered!
    To his amazement, however, after glancing in the direction of his cave, they moved on.

    Suddenly he realized that with the spider web over the entrance, his cave looked as if no one had entered for quite a while.
    "Lord, forgive me," he prayed. "I had forgotten that in you a spider's web is stronger than a brick wall."

    God's ways are not our ways, God's thoughts are not our thoughts.

    He will neither leave us nor forsake us.

    Sometimes a prayer doesn't change the situation. But it changes our attitudes towards the situation and gives us hope which changes our entire life.
    Trust in God whether He helps (in disguise ) or not.

    :hello:
    Thanks sister VLD.

    There is a purpose in everybody’s action. Visible or invisible as each person is animated by God.

    TWO brothers during World War - One. Senior was brilliant drafted to army and and the other junior lazy boozer. For about two years senior provided for parents and junior while he fought wars in far off places.

    Dad cursed the junior and praised the senior. During two years prior to commencement of war the junior began boozing daily and in that process accumulated huge stock of beer and whiskey bottles.

    When war commenced there was huge demand for empty bottles as glass shells were used in making certain type of bombs as splinter material. He sold the bottles of around few thousands that fetched him a fortune and he overnight turned very rich.

    Dad and senior brother taken to him kindly and became so friendly that he gave up drinking turned teetotaller.
