Fished All Night For Nothing by Dr Daniel E Pann
The fish doesn't always have to get away. Fished All Night For Nothing takes you streamside to where the native brook trout live. God uses them to strengthen our spirit or break our heart. Fresh, wholesome air will free your lungs and the observation of deer cautiously lowering their heads for a drink, or the site of bear lumbering through swamp laden forests in steady beat of partridge wings is a bonus from Him.
We're there to unwind, to get away, to allow the Lord a solitary audience absent of phones, deadlines and distractions. We've brought with us an assortment of unnecessary tackle; discouragement, inflated egos, lack of confidence and more. Our equipment is outdated, broken or seldom used. Fished All Night For Nothing explores a loving heavenly Father's way of mending broken spirits, re-spooling weakened relationships, re-establishing depths of service and leading us to uncharted waters by revealing what's inside our tackle box, why we need to try over there, and how to use conditions and situations to our advantage. We'll learn it's possible to go home with an empty creel and still be obedient. There'll be the usual array of fish stories that accompany any expedition of this kind complete with warmth and humor while illustrating the Lord's gentle teaching.
Meet Dag the fish god and find out how he lives in so many Christian's lives, insisting we put other things before the Lord. Sit alongside a quite stream and tie on another hook as hard lessons are often repeated. Watch your line suddenly become taut when a hungry brookie nails a perfect cast and dashes underneath a log waiting for you to decide whether or not to set the hook.
Do you have what it takes, can you read the water, are you a fair weather fisherman? When the sun sets and you're slowly walking uphill to the truck with fish in your creel and softly whistling "Amazing Grace" will it be with the grateful realization God has taught you another thing or two about fishing for men as well?
