An Inspiring Story

This is for the Write Tribe Festival Of Words- Day 5- Inspiring Story

From my memory, I am sharing this Inspiring Story that I had read earlier:

In a small town, there was a meeting at the local Church. The grave issue was that there had been no rain in that part of the country. It was decided that every resident would assemble at the Church that Sunday and all would pray to the Lord for rain.

The young and old, everyone made it to the Church to pray for rain.

The Priest found that only one little girl had got an Umbrella to the venue.

When he asked her why she had got the Umbrella there, she convincingly replied, "When we pray for rain, it will rain & I don't like getting wet!"

Yes, it rained cats and dogs after everyone had prayed....

There is power in life. We just need to recognize the worth & hold on to our Umbrella!

I always remind myself this story whenever I want a certain outcome or if things are not going my way.

I feel we all have an Umbrella that can  shield us from all that we do not wish... All we need is to carry our Umbrella intact & safe and sound and use it wisely!


Here's my small poem :

Let us employ this Umbrella to say bye to negativity!
A positive outlook & faith works in any and every city!

Give faith a chance, true belief & confidence will do.
Success is sure in the Universe with Faith as glue!

Let us always light the candle of faith- that's sensible!
To be inspired is great; to inspire is incredible!

  1. That was a nice inspiring piece and the verse at the end was very apt.Umbrella in your story represented unwavering faith.
    Talking about umbrella on a lighter vein, I was reminded of this.No man’s life is free from problems.”Into each life some rain must fall—but why open your umbrella while the sun is shining?”

      True that life comes with problems. We all have the power- Umbrella is our strength.
      We can employ it in all seasons whether to shield us from the rain or sun- no getting wet or getting tanned!
