Seeds of Faith

The only survivor of a shipwreck was washed up on an uninhabited island. He prayed daily for God to rescue him. Every day he scanned the horizon for an answer to his prayer, but nothing appeared. Eventually he managed to build a shelter from driftwood for his few things. One day after scavenging for food, he returned to find his hut in flames with smoke filling the sky. He stared in grief and anger. Everything was lost. He cried out to God, “How could you do this to me?” Early the next day, however, he was awakened by the sound of an approaching ship. “How did you know where I was?” “We saw your smoke signal,” the rescuers replied.

In the midst of pain and suffering, is our Savior, Jesus. He never promised life would be easy, just that He would rescue you even in the midst of the pains of this life.

These Seeds of Faith have been sown by St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, Bridgeport, NE. I’m Pastor Allen Strawn.
