Fun fact for the day: Bananas are technically berries… what??? So are tomatoes, peppers, grapes, and kiwis… I know, right? Mind. Blown. And to make it even crazier– a strawberry is not a berry… neither is a raspberry or a blackberry… I know, right? It’s crazy.. If you don’t believe me, you can try reading this article to help understand it, but honestly, it’s pretty complex.
You know who I think had their minds blown constantly? The disciples. Imagine being with Jesus and seeing miracles–yes, they believed he was the Messiah and Savior, but seeing him walk on water? Or calm a storm? Feed the 5000? Or RAISE SOMEONE FROM THE DEAD?!? Wow. Mind. Blown. It must have been crazy to watch him. Just imagine.
23 Then he got into the boat and his disciples followed him. 24 Suddenly a furious storm came up on the lake, so that the waves swept over the boat. But Jesus was sleeping. 25 The disciples went and woke him, saying, “Lord, save us! We’re going to drown!” 26 He replied, “You of little faith, why are you so afraid?” Then he got up and rebuked the winds and the waves, and it was completely calm. 27 The men were amazed and asked, “What kind of man is this? Even the winds and the waves obey him!”
Matthew 8:23-27 (NIV)
Dear Lord, You are truly amazing. Thank you for miracles. Help me have more faith in you and in what you are capable of. Amen.
