Let Down Your Net...

Let Down Your Net...
Jesus told his disciples;
"let down your net."
They were amazed how many
 fish they would get.
What happened? 
They couldn't explain.
So many fish.were caught. 
They were hard to contain.
Peter was astonished,
 and fell on his knees.
Asking Jesus; "Forgive me
 now...  please!"
Peter, James and John... 
Left everything behind.
Following Jesus was what
 they had in mind.
Perhaps your "net" is empty.
 Jesus says; "Let it down."
There's a great harvest for you.
 Waiting to be found.
Be a fisher for Jesus.
 A fisher of men.
So that others may be saved
 from their sin.
"Come follow me."  The master
 is calling for you.
Each step you take toward him...
 He'll take TWO!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
