Cast Your Net

Are you casting on the wrong side
when expecting a big haul?
It's futile to work so hard
if it's not God's will at all...

It doesn't count for anything
when you follow your desires...
seek God's kingdom first
then do what He requires.

When Peter put aside his will
and decided to obey,
Jesus gave him all the fish
His nets could haul away.

God will do the same for you
if your struggle you give up,
and completely rely upon
the Lord to fill your cup!

About the Poet
Christian since 1973, widowed in 2007, but by the divine appt. of God, I married a wonderful, godly widower in Oct. 2010. Three grown, married sons and eight grandchildren. My first love is Jesus who inspires my pen, for apart from Him I can do nothing! I desire to honor the Lord and edify readers thru poetry He inspires.
