A Week after Easter 2018

They went out for fishing. They had seen their teacher tried and sentenced to death. They had seen him nailed to a cross and die, they had seen him taken down and buried. Three days later they saw him alive and they talked to him and ate with him. Later after all of this happened their teacher appeared to them in a little bit of a different setting. They were hanging out and all went out in a boat for fishing but caught nothing all night!

At dawn, their teacher was standing on the beach. He called out, "Friends, Amigos! have you caught any fish?" "No" they replied. Then he said, "Throw out your net on the right-hand side of the boat and you will get some!" So they did, and they couldn't haul the net in because there were so many fish in it, 153 of them"

"For all my hard work and all the stress I've endured, it is NOT working! I have caught NOTHING!" 
This is what I say when nothing seems to work in my life and work. But my teacher and master says to me "Follow my teaching, throw your net on the other side.."

All I have to do is follow the directions of my master. I am in the right waters just not in the exact location. And the blessing is right there on the other side of the boat.

If we would just put our net where God directs us, God will pour out blessings that we won't have room to contain.  Happy Easter!
