You breathlessly stay in the race, but needed money to free you from debt outruns you. Do not give up; try a new approach.

Many of the disciples were anglers by trade. Following the death and resurrection of Jesus, they returned to what they knew best at the Sea of Tiberius. (John 21:1-14). They fished all night but dawn's early light revealed empty nets. Were schools of fish teasing with Catch us if you can?
Jesus arrived and gave the group words of advice. "He said, 'Throw your net on the right side of the boat and you will find some.' When they did, they were unable to haul the net in because of the large number of fish (John 20:5-6 NIV)." A carpenter taught skilled fishermen a valuable lesson. The creator is fully aware of our needs and delights in meeting them through unusual means.
