There was a village, which received very scanty rainfall. But in one particular year, there was no rain at all. Fortunately, the Villagers had some water reserves with which they managed to survive.
Shockingly, there was no rain the next year as well. This caused tremendous distress to the villagers and many of them died without water.
One day, a great saint was passing by the village. All villagers came to him for blessings and advice on how they should face the severe drought taking place. He saw the suffering of the people and explained to them the power of prayer. He asked them to surrender their misery to the Almighty.
Seeing no other alternative, they decided to obey the saint. All villagers sincerely started gathering every morning for prayer. They prayed with complete Faith and surrendered their misery to the Almighty.
After a few days, a young boy came running towards the villagers...holding an umbrella and jumping with joy. He started shouting that it’s going to rain...he had seen dark clouds coming towards the village.
And it rained!
What this simple story teaches us is that if we have Complete Faith in the Almighty, we will be able to achieve whatever we want to. If we are pursuing a dream, we should do it with faith. Have faith during both the good times and bad times. Things will eventually fall into place. The time when things fall into place, could be different for different people.
But come what may, the time always comes.
