Keep Your Eyes On Jesus & The Cross


West Cote Blanche Bay where I work sits in a fairly large body of open water. About 50 miles from shore to shore East – West and about 8 miles North -South. For these two logs to drift through our oilfield meant they traveled through some bayous, maybe the Atchafalaya River and a lot of open water, other oil fields and at times very rough seas. Today March 25, 2019 was a very calm day and as I approached these two logs forming an almost perfect cross I thought, “what are the odds of this ‘just happening’ so I could see it, for no reason?” I stopped by them and looked in amazement at them. One of the men I was riding around said, “did you notice it formed a cross?” I said, “yeah” but thought, “Boy Did I Notice!!!” then I went back after I dropped them off to take this video and a couple pics.

Yesterday on my way to work at about 4:50am, as I was talking with my Dad, I told him, ” I see a deer going into to woods” it was about 50 feet to my right. Then BANG, I hit a deer with my 2007 Chevy Silverado right in the middle of the bumper. I saw it flying in the air towards the right shoulder of the road. It bent my entire bumper down about 4″ on each side and broke part of the passenger side turn signal.


I went back and looked for the deer with my truck headlights but didn’t see it. On my way home from work in the afternoon it was bright daylight so I looked for the deer again where I’d hit it but no sign of it.

At about 4:20 am this morning on my way to work I was praying and I asked God. What was I to make of me hitting that deer. I’ve never hit any animal although I’ve had a couple close calls of almost hitting a black bear and a deer in 8 years on this road to work. Surely God could have caused that deer to see my headlights coming, or be delayed or closer to the other deer that went first.

Then the thought came, “Don’t blindly follow anyone or thing, Keep Your Eyes On Jesus.”

Then about 8am today the cross formed by the trees added, “And the Cross”

Don’t be Blindsided Like a Deer in the Headlights!!!

One of my favorite Bible verses is, Acts 17: 11 These Bereans were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.

John 1: 14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
