Lower Your Nets

While participating in the OBS with Proverbs 31, What Happens When Woman Say Yes to God, I have been moved spiritually.  The following verses from Chapter 7 this week about Simon Peter have really helped me stop, think and listen to God.

(10) and so were James and John, the sons of Zebedee, Simons partners.Then Jesus said to Simon, Dont be afraid; from now on you will fish for people. (11) So they pulled their boats up on shore, left everything and followed him.
Luke 5:10-11 (NIV)

What Faith it took for Simon to drop everything and follow Jesus.  I decided this week Jesus was asking me to stop doing things that were taking away from Him as well as my family.  I have stopped those things, and I feel AWESOME.  I really have not missed them and I see I have more time to study the Word and to spend quality time with my family.  
Sometimes just stopping the smallest things, watching TV, playing games, Facebook, eating, etc., seem very hard, however, if Jesus is asking you to stop, He will give you the strength to do it.
I’m not doing this alone.  I’m not strong enough.  I have someone strong beside me helping me every step of the way.  I’m so thankful we do not have to go about things alone.  He is always with us.
What is God asking you to stop to make more time for Him?  Listen, it is the best change you will ever make.
Dear Lord, thank you for this Bible Study and these leaders.  Thank you for moving in my heart.  I praise you and I’m thankful for all you do for me.  I want to be the Woman you want me to be.  I say YES.  Amen.
