When he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, “Put out into deep water,
and let down the nets for a catch.”
Simon answered, “Master, we’ve worked hard all night and
haven’t caught anything. But because you say so, I will let down the nets.”
I am not a fisherman…or fisher woman, for that matter! I don’t think there is anything I enjoy enough to stay up all night to do it…I like my sleep, but if I were a fisherman and I had stayed up all night, caught nothing and someone told me to go back out and put my nets back in the water…I am not sure how I would feel about that. Simon, on the other hand…obeyed. Kind of, “OK, if you say so.” Well, the Lord DID say so and they caught so much fish the nets began to break.
How many times in my life do I have to do something AGAIN? Something that I have already done, more than once…yet, HE asks that I try again and that time the outcome is different. HE asks us to try just one more time. When I am willing to try just ONE. MORE. TIME…things might be different.
I know what it is in my life that HE is asking me to try again, do you know what HE is asking you to try again? Try…just one more time…throw the net into the water and see what you catch.
Lord, thank you for your patience with me. Thank you for the opportunity to try just one more time. Please be with those that are still without power from the hurricane, comfort those that are mourning, bless those that are sick. Lord, please bless the reader of my blog in a special way today. Thank you for you blessings in my life, especially the blessings of family.
