Is there a writer in u? Or are you in a mood to read some short interesting stories? Here's the Story Section for all tastes.

A story is told of a man taking a trip on an old wooden sailing ship.
He was out of the deck one day and saw one of the crew-members climbing the
ropes, going up to the crows nest. When he was about half way up,

the ship pitched to one side and he was thrown overboard.

When he hit the water, he began to scream for help, and flail his arms
wildly, as he struggled to survive. The traveler watched as a sailor
walked over to the rail of the ship, and calmly observed the man in the
water. After a short while the man in the water tired, and began to sink.

Immediately the sailor standing by the rail jumped overboard, and rescued
the drowning victim. After both men were safely on board, the traveler
went over to the rescuer and asked, why did you wait so long to jump in
the water and rescue this man?

He calmly replied, I have found that as long as a man is struggling in the
water, there is a greater chance that he will get us both killed if I jump
in too quickly, and try to save him. I have learned that it is better to
let them struggle awhile, and when they come to the end of their own
strength, I can then jump in and rescue them.

My friend, are you like the drowning man in the story? Have you fallen from
your place of comfort and safety, and you are now struggling just to
survive? Have you cried out to God to come and rescue you immediately? It
is possible the Lord is waiting until you have come to the end of yourself,
and stop struggling in a vain attempt to save yourself, through any means.
When you finally admit you cant save yourself, God will jump into the
water and save you!
