The Roar of the Flight…

We were scheduled to leave

tomorrow for the

Holy Land.

Plans have been delayed.

Yes, I am disappointed,

but I will trust in Him Who calls me.

I pray you are blessed from a previous poem post.

I’ve added a few photos to enhance your journey:)


“The Holy Land,

The Promise Land,

The Walk of Jesus.

Mt. Arbel, Galilee, Israel – Jesus would have come this way to the Sea.

The slope of Mount Olives,

The climb up Masada,

The crossing the Jordan,

The circling of Jericho.

The heights of Mount Herman,

Mount Hermon in the northern limits of Galilee. Also known as the most likely "high" mountain of the Mount of Transfiguration. Matthew 17:1-13 "His face shone like the sun, and His clothes became white as light."

The sailing upon the Sea.

Dancing on the Sea of Galilee!

The covenant meal on Mount Scopes,

The battle for the Holy Mount.

Jerusalem

The delight of the City,

Shopping in the Market of Jerusalem:)

The warmth of the sun,

The steps to climb,

one by one.

The steps of ascent - Jesus would have climbed these steps.

The sand on the horizon,

The calm of the waves.

Tiny shells on the shores of Talgha, the Sea of Galilee in Israel

The roar of the flight,

Night flight home...
Night flight home…

Returning to dreams,

in the midst of the night.”

Poem by denisebalog

Photo taken while sailing on the Sea of Galilee looking towards Mount Arbel. “It is believed to be the location where Jesus would have gone to pray for it is walking distance from the Sea of Galilee, and its vantage point of more than 1000 feet overlooking the lake.”quote from “The King’s Highway – Jesus Revealed in Psalm 119” 

“And after He had dismissed the crowds, he went up on the mountain by Himself to pray.” Matthew 14:23 (ESV)

Poem discovered in my travel journal.

    1. The Lord will bless your interest in His Holy Land. I too was drawn first to wanted to know more about the Sea of Galilee. I read every Scripture in the New that talked or mentioned the Sea. Never for once ever thinking I would one day travel to Israel. No not ever. And then the Lord Who delights in us, blew open a door, and I found myself in a “suddenly”:) I pray your group is interested to:) It is an amazing land and people. For our ” western ” mind sets, the Word turns from black and white to living, 3D color! My eyes are ever forward to return again. Either to Jerusalem or the New Jerusalem, we will meet there one day:) Thank you for stopping by for the visit. Most of my posts have photos from Israel. You can see more by checking the tags:) Shalom!

    1. Yes, thank you Susan:) Our “lyres may be hanging on the willow trees”, but we know God has a plan! Spoke to our guide today, and she is getting stronger everyday! We wait on Him to open the door:) Its a hard trip, and without His presence going ahead and being our rear guard, we don’t want to go anywhere:) The ” wait” is also part of the sweet stuff:) Thank you for your Jubilee blessings!! Who knows, we may be waiting on someone to join us!
