On to the next city… Monterey! This quaint beach city is full of coast, culture, and clam chowder. Of course, the NorCal weather was a change of pace for our sunny, summer vaca. My favorite moment in Monterey was taste testing the chowder at every single restaurant that was offering samples. It was like Costco on the beach. On our way our way to our next location, we stopped at the board walk in Santa Cruz to see the historic roller coaster. My lace shorts, oversized t-shirt, and orange accessories blended with the background of this destination!
And He said to them, “Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.”
If I am being honest, I sit in awe of this verse. Somewhat speechless, or I guess ‘type-less’ to be more precise. I cannot fully explain this piece of scripture in a few sentences and do it justice. The city of Monterey and Cannery Row are a famous home of the fishing industry. Being on this street of history, I couldn’t help but take a look at my own life and ask myself if I am doing everything I can to follow Christ. I want to wake up everyday fulfilling my purpose, and that will be a constant effort, every day, until God calls me to be with him in Heaven. When Peter and Andrew gave up their lives as fishermen, they turned to follow their purpose. Those who do not observe what Jesus calls for their life, become fishers for something else rather than the souls of men.
Have a marvelous week!
