And when He had ceased speaking,
he said to Simon,
"Put out into the deep
and let down you nets
               for a catch."
And Simon answered,
"Master, we toiled all night
          and took nothing!
But at Your word
I will let down the nets."
And when they had done this,
they enclosed 
           a great shoal of fish;
and as their nets were breaking,
they beckoned to their partners
in the other boat to come
                   and help them.
And they came
         and filled both boats,
so that they began to sink.

                         Luke 5. 4-7

(Our responding to God
     impacts everyone around us.
What impossible thing
         is God nudging you to do?
Even in what seems to
    make no sense at all.
Put out into the deep
    and let down your nets.
God always redeems 
         wholly following Him,
even in ways we may never see,
and sometimes in ways
               that break our nets.)
