Once upon a time, a ship was trapped in a violent storm at sea. Unfortunately, the ship was destroyed and all of its passengers, with the exception of one fortunate man, perished in the depths of the ocean. By some divine intervention, this man managed to survive and eventually washed ashore on a deserted island. When he regained consciousness, he found himself alone in this isolated place. Immediately recognizing his dire situation, the man fervently prayed to God, pleading for assistance and desperately seeking any form of help.

Days went by without any assistance reaching him, causing him to spend his nights sleeping on the beach. Each morning, he would awaken and fervently pray to God, hoping for a miracle, but no help arrived. As more days passed in this manner, he gradually lost all hope. Accepting his desolate island existence as his destiny, the man began gathering wood and grass to construct a makeshift hut. Salvaging items from the wreckage of the ship, he stored them within the confines of his humble abode. To sustain himself, he relied on coconuts and fish from the island, finding solace in his new shelter as he spent his remaining days there.

One day, he ignited a fire and ventured out in search of sustenance. Upon his return, he beheld his humble abode engulfed in flames. Overwhelmed by sorrow, he directed his gaze towards the heavens, venting his frustrations to God. "Oh God, I implored you for assistance, but my pleas fell on deaf ears. I constructed a dwelling here for shelter, only to witness its destruction. Your actions are merciless." Consumed by disappointment, he persisted in lamenting to God until nightfall, eventually succumbing to slumber on the sandy shoreline.

In the morning, he woke up to a noise that was very loud. He saw that a ship dock near the shore and he couldn't believe his eyes. He was very happy that finally help had arrived. He got on the ship and the ship sailed away after getting on board. The man asked the captain of the ship how he knew he was stranded on this deserted island, and the captain explained that they had seen a far signal coming from the island. They understood that there was someone on the island- which is why they came. But, he had never sent any fire signal. The captain then told him that they had come here only after seeing his burning hut's fire signal. The man remembered blowing up his own hut and then realized that the Captain was talking about his own hut's fire signal- which means he had forgotten to take it down when he left for the island. He understood that God's plan was bigger than his own plan- and started thanking God for helping him get out of this deserted island.

If we see in our lives that what we plan doesn't always happen and what happens is not always under our control, we often try to understand these events with a limited perspective. When trouble comes, patients start to break hope. Hopeful people start to fade away in difficult times, and then we begin to complain to God--who may not be listening. In such situations, it can be helpful to get out of trouble by maintaining faith in God.

In a world of over 7 billion people God has a purpose and a plan for each and every one of us we should keep doing our efforts by keeping faith in Almighty without losing hearts, our efforts and God's blessings together can get us out of every trouble therefore whenever in your life you feel like your plan is failing everything is happening against your wish always remember that perhaps God has some other plan for you and his plan is always bigger bolder and better than what you plan for yourself.
