I stand in awe in the presence of God.
He amazes me.

That the creator of all heaven and earth would choose to love me ??!!
That the One Who flung stars into space
and caused the mighty mountains to be in their place ~~
the One Who created every living thing
the One Whose creation includes the human being ~~
That He would choose to love me ??!!
He amazes me!

The rain that softly and gently falls to earth
causing the flowers to bloom and the birds to have mirth …
The thunder so loud that it sometimes hurts our ears …
And the snow, the beautiful snow, that brings many cheers ~~
He thought of everything.
He amazes me !

Look at a baby as a new life gets its first start;
Think about the beating of that tiny heart.
Who could have created such as this ?
A new baby is close to pure bliss !
Our God amazes me !

He made our human bodies ~~ such a work of art.
And just which portion do you think is the best part ?
Would it be the eyes that help us to see ?
Would it be the ears that cause you to hear me ?
Or maybe the emotions that help us know what to say ?
Perhaps the blood that flows miles per day ?
All of our senses and every sensation ~~
Think about the wonder of His creation!
Yes, He amazes me.

Think about our awesome God ~~
the rocks, the rivers, the sod.
He sent His own Son to die on that cruel cross ~~
Our mortal minds cannot conceive the cost.
But His great love He freely gave
to save us from a hopeless grave.
Oh, how He amazes me.

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.
