Business as Usual

"Simon Peter said to them, 'I am going fishing.'" I couldn't help but think today that after all the disciples went through, after running in fear and probably looking for a place to be alone, they went back to where they were when it all began. Back to work. Back to where they were comfortable. And, once again, without Jesus, they had nothing. Without Jesus, they worked to no avail. The minute Jesus showed up, all was well. And not just enough so that they were fed, but they were fed abundantly. And, even though there were so many fish, the net was not torn. Even when we feel completely overwhelmed, if we have Jesus in our lives, we can handle life's possible snags. If we need to go fishing, we need to go fishing but remember, keep Him close. Always. Live life in abundance. Load up. Take in the big haul. It's business as usual.
