GOD AND THE SPIDER
God and the SpiderDuring World War II, a US marine was separated from his unit on aPacific island. The fighting had been intense, and in the smoke andthe crossfire he had lost touch with his comrades. Alone in the jungle, he could hear enemy soldiers coming in his direction. Scrambling for cover, he found his way up a high ridge to several small caves in the rock. Quickly he crawled inside one of the caves. Although safe for the moment, he realized that once the enemy soldiers looking for him swept up the ridge, they would quickly search all the caves and he would be killed. As he waited, he prayed, Lord, if it be your will, please protectme. Whatever your will though, I love you and trust you. Amen. After praying, he lay quietly listening to the enemy begin to drawclose. He thought, Well, I guess the Lord is not going to help meout of this one.Then he saw a spider begin to build a web over thefront of his cave. As he watched, listening to the enemy searching for him all the while, the spider layered strand after strand of web across the opening of the cave.He thought what I need is a brick wall and what the Lord has sent me is a spider web. God does have a sense of humor. As the enemy drew closer he watched from the darkness of his hideout and could see them searching one cave after another. As they came to his, he got ready to make his last stand. To his amazement, however, after glancing in the direction of his cave, they moved on. Suddenly, he realized that with the spider web over the entrance, his cave looked as if no one had entered for quite a while. Lord, forgive me, prayed the young man. I had forgotten that in you a spider's web is stronger than a brick wall. We all face times of great trouble. When we do, it is so easy to forget the victories that God would work in our lives, sometimes in the most surprising ways.
Remember: Whatever is happening in your life, with God, a merespiders web can become a brick wall of protection. Believe He is with you always and you will see His great power and love for you.
Always Smile and be happy knowing that whatever u do, God is with you....God loves each individual, we are his children. Spread love and happiness.
