TOUCHING STORY DON'T IGNORE THIS



During World War II, a soldier was
separated from his unit on an
island. The fighting had been
intense,

and in the smoke and the
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, please spare my
life. Whatever will happen, I love
you
and trust you. Amen." After
praying, he
lay quietly listening to the enemy
begin
to draw close.
He thought, "Well, I guess the Lord
isn’t
going to help me out of this one."
Then he saw a spider begin to
build a
web over the front of his
cave. "Hah" 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
hide out and could see them
searching
one cave after another. As they
came
to his, he got ready to make his
last
stand, but then he heard the
leader of
the soldiers say, "you may as well
ignore looking in this cave... if
he had entered here this web
would
be broken!" So they left and he
was
delivered! 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.
