Believing the Promises of God - in His Word

Against all hope, Abraham in hope believed… Without weakening in his faith… Yet he did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God, being fully persuaded that God had power to do what He had promised. ~ Romans 4 [selected 18-21]

Sailing on FAITH

Our flag is raised to join Israel and the Sea of Galilee flags!

Matthew 4:17-19 NLT

From then on Jesus began to preach, “Repent of your sins and turn to God, for the Kingdom of Heaven is near."
One day as Jesus was walking along the shore of the Sea of Galilee, He saw two brothers—Simon, also called Peter, and Andrew—throwing a net into the water, for they fished for a living. Jesus called out to them,

“Come, follow me, and I will show you how to fish for people!”

Bold Meet Daniel Carmel [middle]
On our second day inTiberias our guide, Abraham, had arranged for our group [51 of us] to take a ride on a fishing boat on the Sea of Galilee one morning and then have a St. Peter's fish [Talapia]lunch along the shore.

It was a great plan until Abraham received a phone call while we were on top of Mt Carmel that the boat we were supposed to take had sprung a leak. He was panicked about trying to find another boat with only one hour's notice.

BUT GOD........
Need I say more?

God had this whole thing planned from start to finish.
Daniel is the only Messianic Jew who sails his own fishing boat crew along the Sea of Galilee. Yeshua is is God and he also leads worship and sings all the popular songs that we know - both in English and in Hebrew. He has produced his own CD and visits the USA to promote both his music ministry and the boat ministry in Galilee.
You can contact him for info at:
and tell him that Stephanie sent you!
He has an amazing testimony with how he came to know Yeshua
As Redeemer [Ha-GoEl] and Lord [Adoni]

The atmosphere on the boat that day gave a new sense of
'freedom' in Yeshua
- especially when those flags were raised and wrapped around each other
in the wind!

Choosing JOY in FAITH,

Beautiful... the wind, the words in music, the waters--

Thank you for taking me there and giving me a glimpse of Jesus in those waters. Some day, I hope to get there, but most importantly, I look forward to getting home to Jesus. It's a journey I'm on this day... one step closer to home.

blessings and peace, sister~elaine
