This story is told of a boy who was floating his boat on a pond 
when the boat drifted away. A man came by, saw the boat drifting
out on the pond, and began throwing stones on the far side of the
boat. The boy asked, "what are you doing?"

But then something very interesting happened. As the stones hit 
the water beyond the boat, they created ripples which pushed the 
boat back toward the boy. Even though the stones disturbed the 
smooth water, they achieved the desired result. 

That's how it is with God sometimes. When we drift away from Him,
He throws the disturbing stones out beyond us in order to push us 
back to the shore of His love.
