The hardest part

About the part

That Naaman had to do2 Kings 5:11-14

Was to believe

That something

So simple,

And so opposite

Of what he thought

We ought to do,

Could really work.

But it really did.

So too

With she who fed Elijah.1 Kings 17:8-12

So too

When the twelve disciples

Saw the hungry multitude.Mark 8:1-10

And so too

As when they almost never

Cast their empty net

Because they just knew

That the Stranger

On the shore

Was surely all wet.John 21:3-6

But He wasn't.

And He still

Stands there yet,

Asking us to cast

Our empty net

Into the sea of the needs

Of those around us

To help them see

That our greatest need

Is to focus on the needs

Of those around us

Instead of being focused

On our empty net.

Because He,

From whose feet

Flows the River of Life,Revelation 22:1

Whose waters

Water the Tree of Life,

Whose leaves

Are for the healing

Of the nationsRevelation 22:2

Is the very same "He"

Whose feet were nailed

To the tree

That took His life,

Which becomes to us

A Tree of Life

If we let Him heal

All our deep-seated sins

And sinful tendencies

By daily dipping

In the flood of love

That flows from Calvary
