By the Side of the Water

By the Side of the Water

The last night I spent by the Sea of Galilee in Israel I sat in a lawn chair facing out toward the open water.  In the distance you could see the lights of the Nation of Jordan, not very friendly toward Israel, closer in scattered across the dark sea you could see the lights of the fishing boats on the Sea of Galilee.

As I let my mind wonder across that darken water I thought of the time long ago when Jesus stood on that shore. It was on that shore that he called some of his disciple.  From that shore he walked across the sea and calmed the storm for his friends. It was by that shore that he cooked breakfast for his disciples before he left for glory and it was from that shore that he told them where to cast so that they might catch a lot of fish. I think Jesus loved the water.

 On this Monday stand in your heart by the side of the water and cast all your fears into the water. In the time of crisis in our land, when all seem to be so fearful, Let Christ take those fears and cast them to the bottom and leave them there.
