Today's Photograph . . . . Today, The Start Of A New Year (MQ)
"Behold, I will send for many fishermen," says the LORD, "and they shall fish them; and afterward I will send for many hunters, and they shall hunt them from every mountain and every hill, and out of the holes of the rocks." (NIV)
I can see the outline of the trees in my yard with the sun slowly rising behind it. The start of a new day, and today, the start of a new year.
All the adventures we had last year are memories that will hopefully add to the building blocks that will make us even more successful in the endeavors that we all continue to pursue. And for that and so much more we are thankful.
The year ahead will no doubt have its challenges, its successes, and its disappointments. In all of them, God is there. He always is. No matter where we fish or where we hunt, we must all remember what God truly wants us to harvest.
Hopefully at some point this year, we will all have the opportunity to tell someone about God and what he has done for us.
It may surprise you when the opportunity arises. It could happen during a fishing trip, while walking a field for pheasant or while waiting in a duck blind, but for a lot of us, it will happen.
When it does, God will give us the courage and words to make us all fishers and hunters of men.
Sportsmen's Tip of the Day
Before going on any outing, visualization can be a major key to success. Visualize yourself catching a big fish or making the perfect shot. By doing this you are showing your conscious mind what to expect. When the time comes, more often than not, your subconscious will take over and you will receive the desired result.
