Shedding Blood

Colossians 1:20 And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, John 19:34: But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side. 
This may sound somewhat barbaric, but as opening day for archery season gets closer I find myself thinking about shedding some blood! It really does not matter if it’s a buck or a doe, it’s just something about piercing the side of deer that makes us bow hunters go back to the woods year after year. Drawing blood seems to satisfy us deep from within somehow.

There is No Separation

Romans 8:39 –  39Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

There is no question that when we are in the field, regardless of the hunt, the beauty and majesty of God is all around us. Enjoying the privilege of the hunt, whether it be for deer in South Dakota, ducks in Arkansas, or chasing a big Tom in Alabama, I am always reminded by his natural majesty that there is no separation from the love of God, which is Christ Jesus our Lord. He is there on the long drive to the camp, on the deer stand, in the beauty of the sunrise, and in the quiet of the early morning fog. In the solitude as well as the camaraderie, He is there.

Giving Over Your Reins

Proverbs 3:5-6 – “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.”

This is one of my favorite Bible verses, and it helps me on my daily path in this adventure we call life. Yet, like so many people, it is hard for me to give God full control of my life. We humans like to control things our way. I’m no different. Sometimes, or maybe I should say, all the time, I think I know what is best for my life.

The Ultimate Personal Responsibility

Matt. 16:13-15 … (Jesus asks) His disciples, “Who do people say that the Son of Man is?” And they said, “Some say John the Baptist; and others, Elijah; but still others, Jeremiah, or one of the prophets.” He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?”

With our government taking more and more control over our lives, we live in a time when it is getting easier to abdicate our responsibilities, welfare, and, indeed, our very future to Big Brother or others who “know better.” Today, it is fashionable to blame someone else for our problems, actions, and circumstances.

“Finding Hope When Missing the Mark”


Romans 3:23-24 …”for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.”

Even seasoned hunters know all too well that in spite of best intentions and greatest efforts their aim is sometimes off the mark.  As heartbreaking as it may be, a clean miss is actually a blessing compared to the gut-wrenching pain so often caused by a poor hit.  Old adages are often recited to ease the discomfort – “we all make mistakes,” “we’re only human,” or “nobody’s perfect.”

Peace that Surpasses All Understanding


Philippians 4:7 –  “And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

Have you ever tried to describe hunting to a non-hunter?  If you are an avid outdoorsperson, you’ve probably tried to convey that the experience of the hunt goes far beyond the shot and the trophy.  I know my favorite part of the hunt is getting into the perfect blind, letting my mind quiet and waiting until all my senses are filled with what’s around me.

Walls of Faith

Matthew 17:20 – “I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”
 
Do you ever have one of those weeks where at every turn you have an obstacle to overcome? Do you find yourself trying to figure out how to get over the wall but nothing you do seems to work? I call these “walls of faith.” God puts these walls in front of us to test our faith to see how we are going to handle them. Are we going to rely on ourselves, or rely on Him? These walls come in various shapes and sizes.

Management Is a God Thing

Genesis 3:23… “therefore the LORD God sent him (Adam) out from the garden of Eden, to cultivate the ground from which he was taken.”

From the popularity of game management today, it’s obvious that we hunters have an innate desire to manage the land and its wildlife. Have you ever wondered what is behind that desire to work the land and improve its production? Well, it’s not new with us today. It goes all the way back to the beginning of man’s existence. When God sent Adam out of the Garden of Eden, He instructed him to “cultivate the ground.” Every time I’m on my tractor, I think about that verse. There’s something about working the ground that appeals to men. It runs deep. It goes to the heart of our goal-oriented nature; the cause and effect motivation that so drives us men. Even Solomon, described as the wisest man in the Old Testament, when he wanted to “enlarge his works” (Ecclesiastes 2:4-7), he planted vineyards, made gardens and parks, planted all kinds of fruit trees, made ponds of water, and possessed flocks and herds. He managed the land!
