Hey people,

“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.””
‭‭Luke‬ ‭5:5‬ ‭NIV‬‬

I cast my nets all night and caught nothing. And honestly I’m in that season. Like I’ve worked so hard, been working hard, struggled and toiled. And nothing. My nets have come up empty.
We all have those seasons. When you feel like you’re working so hard towards a dream and goal, but you’re not reaping anything l.
It’s discouraging. It’s heartbreaking. It’s so hard, to be in this space. It can break you, and so many times, we just get out of our board, and give up.
Then here comes Jesus.

Finding him in his hopelessness and discouragement. After a long night of nothing, an exhausted person, a broken spirit, God asks him to go back there one more time.
One more time
It can be the hardest thing to do, especially when you’re heart is discouraged and everything is heavy.
Go out and try one more time.
 
So God, finds this broken person and asks him to go back and try what broke him one more time.

I would have said no.  My heart is broken, my self esteem is low, and I already tried and failed. What’s worse, is everyone saying that, you won’t make it, you tried and failed.
 
But Simon, he goes out, TRUSTING GOD one more time. And that decision changes everything 


So go out and try, one more time.

Love always.
