MORNING THOUGHTS ☕️:
“FOLLOW ME and I will make you fishers of men.” Matt 4:19
And Peter and Andrew IMMEDIATELY dropped their nets and followed Him.
Pre-May 2008, I would read that and think huh? Immediately? Like left everything behind because of a few words spoken to them?
May 22,2008. I got it. Two words + and an encounter and I IMMEDIATELY dropped my nets and left ALL. 😳 And by all...I mean all. Career, dream home, hometown, family close by. Y’all know the story.
Like Peter and Andrew, I had already met Jesus. I just didn’t KNOW Him intimately. That didn’t happen until after the encounter. But what I WAS pre-2008 was hungry, curious, longing for MORE. There had to be MORE. I longed to hear his voice more. I longed for spiritual mentors more. I longed to understand the prophetic more. Oh, and brokenness. That helped. Longing + Broken. Terrible combo pre-encounter. Great combo to usher one in.
I don’t know why Jesus showed up on the shores of Galilee that day or why he showed up for me in May of ‘08 or why He’s done the same for soooooo many others. What I do know is that WHEN He does...it’s game over. Your life will take a sharp turn towards adventure and will never be the same.
My best advice this morning. GET HUNGRY FOR MORE. #morningthoughtswithE
