Continuing the Discussion

We are a week into the challenge.  How are you holding up?  Has God given you any a-ha moments?  For me, I was surprised that a passage of scripture I have read numerous times held a piece of information I'd never seen before. 

In Mark 6, in the context of Jesus walking on water and calming the storm, Jesus tells the disciples to "Take courage; it is I, do not be afraid." 

And then in verse 51, Jesus gets in the boat, the wind stopped, and the disciples were utterly astonished. 

Finally, in verse 52, "for they had not gained any insight from the incident of the loaves, but their heart was heartened." 

Have you ever experienced that moment of, "I know I have read this before, but I had never seen those words!"  I had that moment this week.  I was so encouraged by it too.  That tells me that the Bible will remain as fresh today as it was 19 years ago when I first came to faith.  

If you feel inclined to share below, share a story or two about some a-ha moments God has gifted you with.
