I got this on my Myspace bulletin board today. I searched and couldn't find it, but if I missed it, chow me.

This will give you the chills........GOOD chills. (it starts off super weird)


A young man had been to Wednesday night Bible Study.


The Pastor 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 coffee and pie and they 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 semi commercial 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 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.


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 ask 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, repost. This is so true. Sometimes it's the simplest things that God asks us to do that cause us, if we are obedient to what He's asking, to be able to hear. His voice more clear than ever. Please listen, and obey! It will bless you (and the world). Phil 4:13

The man scrutinized the offering, then screamed, "I asked for lowfat milk, you incompetent NFBSK!!!," and slammed the door in the young man's face.

If this baby is only drinking milk, the baby's too young to have cow's milk. Most doctor's recommend against giving cow's milk to babies under 12 months.

Would you let someone into your house late at night if they claimed they were hearing voices. Makes me glad I'm an atheist.

Just replace "gallon of milk" or "milk" with "sharp and deadly hatchet."

You would think God would know that!

I thought babies drank formula. Either way, God should have sent the milk to this guy's house:

Hubert, I thought for a minute you were going to post a link to the Amish-guy-who-sold-raw-milk story. Yours is just as entertaining though [Smile]

About the article Hubert gave: The first time we saw it, being a policeman's family, we all said the same thing. "Why the hell didin't the officer shoot the tires to stop/slow down the suspect?!" While the article doesn't mention it, I would like to state that the McD's the other guy hid at was across the street.

This is on the news constantly here. I feel so bad for the little girl seeing her daddy shot. [Frown]

I don't know the entire circumstances from this article- but if the man had struck a police officer he wasn't simply fleeing in the vehicle, the vehicle became a deadly weapon which means that deadly force may be used in the interest of public and officer safety.

Granted, this doesn't allievate the suffering of that poor child, it doesn't say whether the officers knew she was in the vehicle at the time of the shooting or not, only that she was there.
