What are You doing, God?

Just wanna share with you guys...

A man who had been shipwrecked was living alone on a desert island. He had finally built himself a little refuge out of palm branches that would shelter him from the sun and the rain. That night his hut caught fire and burned to the ground.



"What are You doing, God?" he cried. "I have so little left in life, and yet You let my house burn down. How could You let this happen to me?



"A few hours later a ship came and picked him up. "We saw your fire signal," the crew said. "We didn't realize these were inhabited islands. We'll take you home.



"The man closed his eyes in embarrassment. "Uh, thank You, God," he said finally.



If you are going through some tough times.. and it is so hard to understand what God is up to.. hang on... God knows what He is doing... He cares for you.. and He is in control.. His ways are higher than our ways. Trust Him.

That is a very fine post to prove the point that God is always in control no matter what. We just have to trust Him and His unfailing love for us. Thanks for the sublime post. God bless you always.

I love this posting..Some times we get tempted to ask God why or when, instead of just trusting Him no matter what happens.

He is always in control. He is always able and willing to help us. He always makes a way of escape. HE IS FAITHFUL!!

God bless you sister...

To quote a wonderful old evangelist who sometimes visits our church-"When you're down to nothing, God's up to something."

I absolutely agree with this post. My problem is I like to try and take the control back - lol.
