“I fished all night and nothing. I’m cold. I’m wet. I’m tired. I wish I’d done more…” ~whipped

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

It is the desire of my heart that God be Lord of my life. Life’s experiences have killed the old man and God is building a new creation in me. I look forward to experiencing the new man God creates in the old vessel known as Archie via "God Spots".

  1. 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… 🙂
