| | how great it is that we live in a country...
where you can hunt, fish, and just be outdoors. I love our country and the fact that God helped make it free for us to live in. I think that's something as hunters we sometimes take for granted. I know I do especially on those early mornings when I don't want to get out of bed. I wouldn't GET to be up that early in the morning to go hunting if we lived in a country where hunting was illegal or so restricted that it wasn't worth going.
I am a firm believer in God and Country in that order. One of the awesome things I enjoy while being out on those cold mornings is the wonder and awe of this earth that God made for us and how everything fits together so perfectly.
I know there are hunters out there who feel the same way I do, who are Christians and love to hunt. I can honestly say that if you pray to God and ask him to keep you safe and for his will to be done, your hunting experience will be all the better. I'm not saying that if you pray for a BIG 200" buck to come walking by your stand at 8:02am on opening day that God will make it happen... But then again, he does reward those who follow his word- maybe not in THAT way, but in other ways.
I am a firm believer that God loves everyone- or else he wouldn't have made us. I know in our world today there is alot of hate, and it's easy to follow the world's way. But having belief in God and his son Jesus, gives my life, personally, something worth living for.
I'm not trying to offend anyone with these words, and I'm not trying to start a debate.... but I do believe...
**without God we wouldn't BE.
