“Throw your net on the right side of the boat and you will find some fish.” John 21:6

Dear Jesus, you must have had a smile on your face that day after your resurrection when you let your disciples fish all day without one fish and then appeared on shore and told them to throw their net on the other side of the boat. They caught lots of fish and you caught their hearts forever. You have captured mine too. You control everything in my life, the “good” and the “bad”. Free me from the prison of thinking I am responsible for everything around me. I control very little and that which you have given me to watch for you- I barely know how to maintain. You put all my blessings in my net. To me you are greater than all your gifts. Help me to live in the joy of having you as Savior and God. Then I will smile at setbacks as much as breakthroughs. You send them both to bless me. Amen.

If Jesus leaves your net empty, don’t fret. He is making room for the other blessings.
