Here's One...

Here's a good story with a moral. I love those:

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.

The Moral of This Story:
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.
