Go with the Flow

If you want to come to life…change is required.

Luke 5:11

When they brought their boats to the shore, they left everything and followed him.

When seasoned fishermen had caught nothing all night…they were almost certainly just humoring the itinerant rabbi who advised them to put out into deep water and lower their nets one more time.

But when this resulted in their nets being so full of fish that they nearly broke, these fishermen were shaken.

They were so amazed…not only by this feat…but by the inspiring way Jesus had been preaching about God…that they “left everything and followed him.”

There comes a time in life when we are given the opportunity to wake up.

We come to a crossroads.

We realize that there is a greater purpose in life.

The earlier this happens the better!

Your career, your house, your car, your money, your beliefs…all will fade to oblivion.

What are you living for?

Why did God love-you-into-existence?

Why are you here?

As scripture tells us, “God is love” (1 John 4:8). You and I are meant to experience Love and to share that Love with others.

But to do so…your ego needs to relinquish control and release all the attachments that will never provide lasting peace.

We are being invited to immerse ourselves in God’s eternal out-pouring of love in an on-going, unfolding act of creation.

What are you willing to leave…to do so?
