    The only survivor of a shipwreck was washed up on a small, uninhabited
    island. He prayed feverishly for God to rescue him, and 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. But
    then one day, after scavenging for food, he arrived home to find his
    little hut in flames, the smoke rolling up to the sky.

    The worst had happened - everything was lost. He was stunned with grief
    and anger. "God, how could you do this to me?" he cried.

    Early the next day, however, he was weakened by the sound of a ship that
    was 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 sometimes when things appear to be going
    badly. But we shouldn't lose heart, because God is at work in our lives,
    even in the midst of pain and suffering. Remember, next time your little
    hut is burning to the ground, it just may be a smoke signal that summons
    the grace of God.

    For all the negative things we have to say to ourselves, God has a
    positive answer for it
