I’ve worked hard all my life, but it seems the net has come up empty. I keep throwing the net out hoping this time it will be different. The fish are jumping all around me. It’s just that the net keeps coming up empty. I don’t get it. Ever felt that way? I have. I feel that way, today.
But you know there is a something different about my life today. The difference is in the hope. I still fish hard. I still come home wet, tired and cold, but there is hope for tomorrow. I have hope that one day, Jesus will come along and tell me where to fish that my nets will come back full to overflowing. Then, I will know what it is like to fish with Jesus.
“Put out into the deep, and let down your nets for a catch.” ~Jesus
“Simon answered him, “Master, we worked all night, and took nothing; but at your word I will let down the net.” When they had done this, they caught a great multitude of fish, and their net was breaking.”~Dr. Luke

What are you looking for? Maybe you are looking for the wrong fish?
cheryl. Sounds like Dr. Seuss. One fish. Two fish. Red fish. Blue fish. 🙂
You have a discerning Spirit. I have changed nets, with expectations of big catches… 🙂
I love Dr. Seuss! Let me know what you catch.
