Lessons learned on Sunday

A man was on a boat in the ocean. A terrible storm swept through and right before he was thrown overboard by the forcible winds he made an SOS distress call. The man floated for a couple days on a piece of the wreckage when he heard a plane come by....the plane dropped down a raft...at which the man said "God will help me" and refused the raft. Then a boat came to his rescue and dropped him a flotation device.....the man again refused the device and stated "God, will help me"! After awhile a helicopter came by and dropped him a rope and yet again. the man stated emphatically...."God will help me!"... and refused the rope.

The man eventually drowned...

When he arrived at the Pearly Gates to Heaven the man asked God......

"Why did you not help me?"

God, placed a hand on the mans shoulder and said."

"My son, I sent the boat, the plane and the helicopter....you chose not to accept them!"

Louise, I've always loved this story. It shows how sometimes the answer is there and we just don't or won't see it.

Thank you for our Sunday sermonette. Now relax and watch the Oscars at whatever time they may come on tonight in Germany !!!!

Free some time help is right there and we chose not to take it, becasue we think something Greater is out there waiting. Help is right around the corner.

This is my favorite story. I used to be constantly asking myself if I've missed the boat, the plane or the helicopter. How do you know? how can you be sure this is not leading you down another rabbit hole. Well i've decided to be like Alice, every rabbit hole is an adventure and a chance to learn more about who you are and what's really out there. Enjoy the experience!
