I took this photo in Dangriga last week. This gentleman was diligently working to repair his net as his children played in the yard. Fishing for him is not a hobby. It is how he feeds his family. Casting his net out into the sea is a daily activity for him.
We have had times in the counseling office when we have an unexpected client stop in and we choose to put aside what we are doing to give our attention to the person in front of us. We have to put down our 'nets', so to speak, and follow what He would have us do.
I don't think that leaving your net has to always mean literally walking away from your livelihood. To me it means being open to those divine appointments within our days which come in the form of interruptions. These interruptions may simply be an opportunity from God to guide you deeper in your walk with Him.
May we be open to leaving our nets when He calls.
And may we see the blessings in the divine appointments He brings our way.
