Jones 762-7963 Stop, look and listen I remember back when I was just a lad, I had a cou- ple of real good hunting dogs. And in the winter months, I spent most of my nights somewhere out there with the dogs. For that was about the only way I had for making extra money. I remember one night, I had ventured out a long ways from home and was hunt- ing in an area that I didn't know the lay of the land where the fences was. But I heard my dogs bay about a quarter of a mile down the Broke the two top slats and turned about three flips down the hill before get- ling back on my feet and making it on down to where the dogs were. Well, they had a skunk and his hide was worth a dollar and a half. That was really good when you worked all day on the farm for just one dollar. Well, battered and bruised up, I got home just about the time Mom was getting breakfast. Many of those things hill.

So I was running just as fast as I could down that hill. The only light that I had was just an old lantern that only shined about three foot in front of you. Well, the next thing I knew I had come up on a gate. help to me years down the road. Even some of them would help me with my Christian life and my dedi- cation to the Lord. If you're in a situation that you don't know which way to turn, just stop, look and listen and then get down on your knees and tell Jesus that you need some guidance. He will be there because He said He was always a present help in time of need. You may even come up on a bad accident but if you don't have no training to know what to do in that case, well, just don't do anything but whisper a prayer until someone comes along with the technology to know how to handle those folks that might be fastened into a wrecked automobile. Especially when you come into a situation where the powers of this world are shaking you, just look up and remember your redemption draweth nigh. You might say, "This is a big one and I just don't know how to handle this situation." Just remember II Timothy 2:15 that says, "Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth." He will give you the words to say when everything else fails.
