When Your Hut
When Your Hut
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
himself 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
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
P.S. You may want to consider passing this on, because you never know
who feels as if their hut is on fire today.
My hut is not only on fire but I feel that it has burned to the ground! I felt total abondonment from the world, which is a place I have never trusted FROM THE BEGINING. My Shrink says: that is from never having trusted my parents to provide the emotional support I needed and many times I provided it to them.
What ever the reason my hut seems to catch fire with a frequency that I abhor! But through the fire God has always reshaped my life like a Master Blacksmith. Heating that fire to a white hot core....adding the steel to be reshaped, bent.....hammered....! (Not much fun at all, LOL!But so needed for continued growth). Then after putting the steel in a bucket of cool spring water you hear a great sizzsling hiss! The transformation has happened and the Blacksmith brings out the steel in a new, more usuable, unique shape. Something that could not occur without the white, hot fire!
I hate change. I would stay in my safty zone no matter how uncomfortable or how it was an aweful fit for my spirit. My life has never reflected the true inner me. I have just gone with the flow of the world. I have been so untrue to the little girl I was who always challenged everything.
When I think back to the closet me I can remember, say around five or so, I remember a little girl full of life and energy; twirling in the yard with satin ribbons. She was so full of glee and vibrant with life. Just having fun watching those ribbons blowing in the breeze, change form and shape as her body spun and inviting anyone to join in the experience!
I have been untrue and unfaithful to her. I feel she is mad at me for giving in to the world and it's games. I sold out and became a follower not a leader, for I was born to be a leader as it is in my very fiber.
How unhappy not to be who you were created to be! I feel like a stranger in a strange land with rules I hate because they make no sense to me. People argue, sneer,holler, make hurtful remarks, use you for their own sick advantage until they no longer need you as their crutch.
I sold her out! How in God's holy name could I have done that to myself?
NO ONE HAS THE RIGHT TO HURT A CHILD MENTALLY OR PHYSICALLY OR ANOTHER PERSON FOR THAT MATTER! IT IS NEVER RIGHT TO USE A PERSON FOR YOUR OWN GAIN! IT IS NEVER RIGHT TO PRETEND TO LOVE A PERSON YOU DATE AND MAKE PROMISES WHEN THERE IS NOT LOVE AND NO INTENTION OF KEEPING THEM. IT IS A FALSE PRETENCE. HURTFUL AND SHAMEFUL! NO ONE HAS THE RIGHT TO START GOSSIP OR SLAM SOMEONE OUT OF SPITE AND MEANESS. IT CAN STOP WITH YOU AND DIE! YOU DO HAVE THE OBLIGATION TO BE TRUE TO A LOVING SPIRIT AND DO GOOD! IF YOU CANNOT DO GOOD THEN YOU MUST LEAVE IT BE AND DO NO HARM! LIVE EACH DAY AS IT IS YOUR LAST BECAUSE THIS DAY WILL NEVER COME AGAIN. WHAT EXPERIENCE OR GOOD WORKS ARE YOU TRADING TODAY FOR?
I could go on and on but those are just some of the atrosities that come to mind. Remember what we sow we will reap. If we are not true to ourselves but live in an untrue state of being we rob our own inner soul. Surround yourself with people who have the spirit of goodness. Try to help those that are lost. You will be whole once again!
TAKE THE JOURNEY AND FIND WHO YOU WERE BORN TO BE! LIVE THAT LIFE TRUELY AND HONESTLY! START TODAY FOR TOMARROW IS TO LATE! TOMARROW NEVER COMES.

Hawk, BBw and mshunyhole thanks for taking the time to read my blogs. I have been busy, Hawk, behind my desk. LOL building a new on-line biz. Something I have wanted to do for a very long time. I got ripped off once so I got scared. This time I am in a great program but it is still all up to what I do with it. Please pray for my adventure and I will pray for all of you guys. I will be at the meet and greet or at least am planning to be! |
Hawk my stubbling block right now is that I do not feel good enough to be liked because I am fat. I hate it am ashamed of it and hide because of it. I hope to be a think person some day but I am finding it hard to get out now. Right or wrong people do judge on weight. Whether it is because of emotional reasons or medical reasons it is very hard to lose. I can't get out and walk either which is a great way to lose. So... I will have to get a new plan. I try to eat only healthy fresh fruits and veg., lean meat or fish (actually very seldom but do enjoy a good steak!) my down fall is if I buy snacks I eat them all! So I hardly ever buy them. So.... it must be the lack of exercise.
