HAVE FAITH

Some folks claim that God's to blame
For the world's hunger and depression
He's only just 'giving us
More time for meditation'
Why must we hurry and scurry
And never take time for thought
We must remember our ticket to heaven
When we look the Good Book through
We'll find in many a place,
How God's children were punished when
They forgot Him in Life's Race.
Can we expect the God of Heaven
To fill our every wish while we spurn
His Holy Name and in the end
Bring nothing in return.
Had we the faith of men of old
The Love for Him who died
To save us from our many sins
Our needs He would provide.
For He who clothed the sparrow
Provided also their feed
And He in His infinite Mercy
Will not forget us in our need.

3 Bullets

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, but missed it. The squirrel disappeared into a hole in a cottonwood treel.

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 stay focused."

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, 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 for his family to eat.

The snake, (Satan), was dead simply because the man listened to God.

Moral of the story:
Pray first before you do anything, aim and shoot high in your goals, and stay focused on God.
