Cast out into the deep

After he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, “Put out into deep water and lower your nets for a catch.”
Luke 5:4

This may not be a new concept (obviously), but your humble blogger felt it was worth reiterating.  Sometimes, it seems like there are times when the most significant impact one they can make in their life for the good is to do a total overhaul in an area that needs improvement. It means doing a full step outside one's comfort zone. Baby steps can sometimes leave room for resistance to kick in. It means being the bird that get kicked out of it's nest to learn to fly. Easy? No, but oftentimes the risk is worth the reward. In full transparency, it's a lesson yours truly is learning.
