Oh Lord – there are so many of your children in need. But, then you already know that. You are omnipresent and are aware of all things. You are the one and only true Living God.
Many of your children are in need due to some issue in their life. They work within their hearts to push past the pain, and uncertainty. They go through each day trying to get answers concerning their private issues. Or answers to prayers.
Some of your children, don’t know You God- or your son Jesus their Savior. And so, their issues will be that much harder to deal with. The difficulties will be insurmountable without you in their lives. They will fumble and be in distress.
For those of us who are fortunate enough to know You – we can get through anything with you by our side. The infinite wisdom and calm that comes from having You living within is indescribable. And, for those of us carrying health issues, financial issues, or any other matter of concern-with You in our lives; it makes it easy to go forward.
I wish to touch others and bring them to your arms Lord. Your Words have taught me well. Have I become a “fisher of men?” Have I gone forward each day in a manner pleasing to you my Lord, my God? Thank you for your guidance and your gifts that you have laid upon me.
For those who are lost and have no sight? For those who are deaf and cannot hear. For those who are dead…Your light and love can restore their sight, and their hearing. Your death and resurrection-brought them eternal salvation.
Each of us go through life with issues pending: A health crisis, an ongoing health issue-dealing with the death of a loved one, someone being abandoned by a loved one, financial struggles, an addiction, lonliness, homeless, going hungry, physical abuse, verbal abuse…The list is endless, and each one heartbreaking.
The only one that can help with all of the above issues and more is YOU my Lord. Continue to teach me to become a “Fisher of men” so that I might employ your ways onto the blind, deaf and the ones in bondage. Give me the wisdom to ”cast your net” of tolerance and ministry of love to the ones living in “fear” and “bondage” so that they may be set free in the name of Jesus Christ.
I have the net ready Lord. Thank you for using me as a vessel…for your purposes.
May others who know you intimately continue to “cast their net” -looking for men.
Do you have your net ready?
The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Highest will overshadow you. Luke 1:35

As the Heavens are higher than the earth so are my ways higher than your ways. Isaiah 55:9
The Lord…has not forsaken His kindness to the living and the dead!

Very good piece well done. Said so much about your love for God. I like the scriptures at the end. When I was little I knew a song called fishers of man. That song went throught my head while reading you poem. Thanks for that memory. Thank you for your time you spent on my site. It is always welcomed. Blessing of Light
