      Just remember, "Our God is an Awesome God!"

      READ This All the Way, and send it back please!

      A young man had been to church .The Bishop had shared about listening to God and obeying the Lord's voice.

      The young man couldn't help but wonder, "Does God still speak to people?"

      After service, he went out with some friends for pie and ice cream and
      discussed the message.

      Several different ones
      talked about how God had led
      them in different ways.

      It was about ten o'clock when the young man started driving home. Sitting in his car, he just began to
      pray, "God...If you still speak to people speak to me.

      I will listen. I will do my best to obey."

      As he drove down the main street of his town, he had the strangest thought to stop and buy a gallon of milk. He shook his head and said out loud, "God is that you?" He didn't get a reply and started on toward home.

      But again, the thought, buy a gallon of milk. The young man thought about Samuel and how he didn't recognize the voice of God,and how little Samuel ran to Eli. "Okay, God, in case that is you, I will buy the milk." It didn't seem like too hard a test of obedience. He could always use the milk.

      He stopped and purchased the gallon of milk and started off toward home.

      As he passed Seventh Street, he again felt the urge, "Turn down that street." This is crazy he thought and drove on past the intersection.

      Again, he felt that he should turn down Seventh Street. At the next intersection, he turned back and headed down Seventh. Half
      jokingly, he said out loud, "Okay, God, I will." He drove several blocks, when suddenly, he felt like he should stop. He pulled over to the curb and looked
      around. He was in a semicommercial area of town. It wasn't the best but it wasn't the worst of neighborhoods
      either. The businesses were closed and most of the houses looked dark like the people were already in bed. Again, he sensed something, "Go and give the
      milk to the people in the house across the street." The young man looked at the house. It was dark and it looked like the people were either gone or
      they were already asleep. He started to open the door and then sat back in the car seat. "Lord, this is insane. Those
      people are asleep and if I wake them up, they are going to be mad and I will look stupid." Again, he felt like he should go and give the milk.

      Finally, he opened the car door. "Okay God, if this is you, I will go to the door and I will give them the milk. If you
      want me to look like a crazy person, okay. I want to be obedient. I guess that will count for something but if they don't answer right away, I am
      out of here." he walked across the
      street and rang the bell. He could hear some noise inside. A man's voice yelled out, "Who is it? What do
      you want?" Then the door opened before the young man could get away. The man was standing
      there in his jeans and T-shirt. He looked like he just got out of bed. He had a strange look on his face and he didn't seem too happy to have some stranger standing on his doorstep.

      "What is it?" The young man thrust out
      the gallon of milk. "Here I brought this to you."

      The man took the milk and rushed down a hallway, speaking loudly in Spanish. Then from down the hall
      came a woman carrying the milk toward the kitchen. The man was following her holding a baby. The baby was crying. The man had tears streaming down his
      face. The man began speaking
      and half-crying,"We were just praying. We had some big bills this month and we ran out of money.  We didn't have any milk for our baby. I was just praying and asking God to show me how
      to get some milk." His wife in the kitchen yelled out, "I asked him to send an Angel with some. Are you an Angel?"

      The young man reached into his wallet and pulled out all the money he had on him and put in the man's hand. He turned and walked back toward his car and the tears were streaming down his face. He knew that God still answers prayers.

      This is a simple test...If you believe that God is alive and well, send this to at least ten people and the person that sent it to you.

      You may not mean much to the World,
      But you may mean the World to someone!

Peace to you John 3:16 -
I've seen this (and variations of it) several times over the years but it never gets old.  I need the reminder that, indeed, God speaks to all of us IF WE WILL JUST LISTEN!
God Bless,

Covering your tracks is futile; God knows where you're going and where you've been.

Walking for Jesus...Read on.....
Walking for Jesus

This man is walking the World for Jesus. Please pass him on so that he
can reach his destination. Say a prayer then pass him on to bless others.

This is really interesting how someone did this.

Our assignment is to love and spread the gospel throughout the world.
Have a blessed day and touch somebody's life today! I just did.

He's walking around the world - via e-mail!! Pass it on so he can get  there!
