Dreaming about fishing

November 20, 2008

A few weeks ago I had a semi-epiphany. It came to me in the early hours of the morning. It was something I saw in a dream. In this dream I was standing next to Jesus. He was looking out from high up on the shore towards the disciples who were fishing on a boat just off the shore. In my dream Jesus calls out to the disciples (in the same way as in John 21) to cast their nets on the other side…..

I woke up at this point and knew what this was saying.

It is a wonderful metaphor of our spiritual life. How often we find ourselves fishing on the wrong side of the boat.
