1. Afraid of stepping out of the boat? Or afraid of seeing Him come walking on the water, either way, He’d say fear not.

  2. Rachel,
    Thank you so much for this needed reminder to call out to Jesus when the seas in my life are turbulent. He is the only One who can calm my fears and set my sights on shore. I share your passion in Cries From Syria as I work with orphaned and destitute children in the Middle East. There are no missionaries that go there…only martyrs. Oh how they need the love of Jesus.
    Blessings friend,
    Bev xx

      Blessings to you, too, Bev for the wonderful work you do. There are so many children suffering in the world. It’s heart-breaking. I spoke to my friend Yar today and the things I’ve been reading recently in the news about South Sudan became more real as she told me about the worsening situation for child and adult relatives there.

  3. I’m just a teensy bit paranoid about water, so all of Jesus’ teachable moments around boats and water really resonate for me. Thanks for bringing this one home today!

  4. I just love how you brought this story to life and how you wove in your personal experience… but mostly that you got to see that boat in person! Thanks for sharing these images and your encouragment today! Just what I needed to hear!

      Thanks Liz. It’s great when the Bible comes alive isn’t it? Thankful that we have the Holy Spirit who really makes it come alive.

  5. Rachel, what fun insights you shared on the lake vs sea winds. Seeing that boat does make me appreciate the fear the disciples would have faced when storms came. I love the reminder that we only need to call out to Jesus to experience the peace of His presence.
    ((Hugs)) to you, sweet friend.
