Early in the morning, Jesus stood on the shore, but the disciples did not realize that it was Jesus. He called out to them, “Friends, haven’t you any fish?”
“No,” they answered.
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 21:4-6)
Sometimes we become so accustomed to where we live, what we do, the lives we live, that we fail to see what God is doing on “the other side.” When we step out of our comfort zones, when we experience life from another angle, we begin to see a bigger picture of God and His actions in this world.
The Other Side of the Boat is the devotional journal of military chaplain’s wife who accompanied her husband to faraway places around the world during his 30-year army career. Each stop became an opportunity to see how God was leading her family and to witness how God is touching the world in beautiful and unexpected ways.
Each story offers not only encouragement and hope. But inspiration for each of us to see the surprising things God is doing on “The other side” of our yard, our church, and our lives.
