They Forsook All

“And when they had done this, they caught a great number of fish, and their net was breaking.” Luke 5:6
“And they came and filled both the boats, so that they began to sink.” Luke 5:7
“So when they brought their boats to land, they forsook all and followed Him.” Luke 5:11

How many boat loads of fish have I received and been thankful for, but then stayed with, turning to the next need . . .how do I get it to market?

Oh Lord, move me beyond praying that my needs be met to praying that my life be sunk deep with the Meeter of my needs. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Catch and Release

Hearts weigh heavy
with gratitude
for needs
that have been met,
only to release the gift
and follow the Giver
to be closer
and closer yet.

Transplanting People

“You will bring them in and plant them
In the mountain of Your inheritance
In the place, O Lord, which You have made
For Your own dwelling.”  Exodus 15:17

Our new neighbors asked my husband for some help with a special project.  They paid him to take 7 plants from where they used to live and plant them outside at their current residence.

Thank You, Jesus, for wanting me ever and ever closer to You.  That’s exactly what I want too!  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Moving Closer

Chosen and purchased
passed over, brought through

there are no limits
to what You will do

to bring Your children
closer to You.
