Three Bullets

*With God all things are possible*-Matthew 19:26


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 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 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.

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 favor.

Wait, be still, and patient: keep God first,

and everything else will follow.

Pass this on in order that someone else might be blessed.

FROM ONE FRIEND TO ANOTHER ...

Don't worry about tomorrow, God is already there!!!

I can't take credit for this work. My mom sent it to me by email. I don't know who wrote it. I don't know, and my parents don't know if this story was true or not. When I read it, I knew I had to share it.
