Today I sailed the Sea of Galilee!
Every time I think my visit to Israel can't get any better, something or someone will change my mind. That's what happened to me today when I had an encounter with Jesus on the Sea of Galilee.
After eating breakfast this morning we all boarded a bus headed for the sea. I was feeling a little anxious about some things, so I wasn't myself today. But when I stood up for prayer, the Lord spoke to my inner spirit and said "peace, be still." At that moment, the weight lifted and I was able to participate in all the tour activities.
Next, we went to the site of the Beatitudes where Jesus gave His famous Sermon of the Mount.
Then we went to Tabgha, the site of the miracle of the loaves and fishes, and to Capernaum the "City of Jesus."
We went to Bethsaida, the birthplace of Peter, Andrew, Philip and the Zebeedee family. And we went to Kursi, the place where Jesus performed the miracle of the swine.
But isn't that just like Him? Jesus will show up in our lives and speak to our financial problems, health issues, marriage and more. Jesus did for me what He did for others more than two thousands years ago. He told me to be still.
