Just a little something for you to read to encourage you.
There once was a man who had nothing for his family to
eat.. He had an old rifle and three bullets. So, he decided
that he would go out hunting and kill some wild game for
dinner. As he went down the road, he saw a rabbit. He shot
at the rabbit and missed it. The rabbit ran away. Then he
saw a squirrel and fired a shot at the squirrel and missed
it. The squirrel disappeared into a hole in a cottonwood
tree. As he went further, he saw a large wild 'Tom'
turkey in the tree, but he had only one bullet remaining. A
voice spoke to him and said, 'Pray first, aim high and
However, at the same time, he saw a deer which was a better
kill. He brought the gun down and aimed at the deer. But,
then he saw a rattlesnake between his legs about to bite
him, so he naturally brought the gun down further to shoot
the rattlesnake. Still, the voice said again to him, 'I
said 'Pray, Aim high and Stay focused.'
So, the man decided to listen to God's voice.
He prayed, then aimed the gun high up in the tree and shot
the wild turkey. The bullet bounced off the turkey and
killed the deer. The handle fell off the gun and hit the
snake in the head and killed it. And, when the gun had gone
off, it knocked him into a pond. When he stood up to look
around, he had fish in all his pockets, a dead deer and a
turkey to eat for his family.
The snake (Satan) was dead simply because the man listened
Moral of the story:
Pray first before you do anything, aim and shoot high in
your goals, and stay focused on God.. Never let others
discourage you concerning your past. The past is exactly
that, 'the past.' Live every day one day at a time
and remember that only God knows our future and that he will
not! put you through any more than you can bear.
Do not look to man for your blessings, but look to the
doors that only He has prepared in advance for you in your
Wait, be still and patient: keep God first and everything
else will follow.
Don't worry about tomorrow, God is already there!!!
My God is a good God. Amen!
