More Than One Miracle in John Chapter 6

Last night I was reading in John chapter 6 where Jesus walks on the water and the disciples are afraid. I imagine that anyone reading this post knows that Jesus' walking on the water was a miracle, but what about in verses 19-21 where it says that the boat was 20 or 30 furlongs away from the land?

Now by my calculations 30 furlongs is a little more than three miles. But wait, in verse 21 it says that immediately after they willingly received him into the ship, the ship was at the land.

So here is what I got from this. Even if you are miles away from Jesus spiritually, He is willing to come to you. Not only will He come to you, if you receive him willingly, He will immediately place you exactly where you should be!

I thank God for being willing to come and get me, and I pray for the mind to be willing to receive him at all times.


  1. YAY!! Good for you!! Sorry I didn't get back to you sonner. I'm so happy to see that you got the picture up there. It's weird that you were able to get it up there, but not where you want it. I hope you get it figured out and having looking just like you want it. By the way, I really like this post. I'm going to have to think about this some more. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Hey Shereen,

    I originally wanted it next to the Mocha Moments title, but I think I actually like it on top.

    Please let me know what your thoughts are as you think about it more. I had never seen it that way before so I was shocked as I was reading it.


Hey! Thanks for stopping by. Please leave a comment and tell me what you think.
