Encounters With The Messiah – The First Disciples

Devotional Treasures

Anstruther, Fife, Scotland.

Now as Jesus was walking by the Sea of Galilee, He saw two brothers, Simon who was called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea; for they were fishermen.And He said to them, “Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.”Immediately they left their nets and followed Him.Going on from there He saw two other brothers, James thesonof Zebedee, and John his brother, in the boat with Zebedee their father, mending their nets; and He called them.Immediately they left the boat and their father, and followed Him.Matthew 4:18-22 (NASB)

One of my favourite day trips is the fishing village of Anstruther, in the East Neuk of Fife. It is the biggest of the Fife fishing villages, in between Pittenweem and Crail. The sounds and smells of the harbour are heaven on earth; waves breaking rhythmically on the nearby beach…

About Faye

I m a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed writing even from an early age. My book Beyond the Ashes has been written as a labour of love. All the characters are real to me and their story needed to be told. As a Christian my desire is to write General Fiction stories about real people but Hope and a desire for 'better' will always be part of the journey. I have had several short stories published over the years and moderate success in writing competitions. I realized as I was thinking today (30/01/15) that perhaps I should add here that I have had life experiences of many valley times but also many mountain top experiences. I can understand and be beside anyone who finds their life in tatters because I have 'been' there. Of course as I have got older as well there have been the added sorrows of losing not only older family members but also one by one finding the dearest of friends and the ones of greatest support and care also dying. On the site of rich mountains has been my certainty of the value of marriage and how grateful I am that after loss and sadness I made a happy and long-lasting marriage commitment. The one who was my best friend back then is still my best friend 45 years later. Beyond the Ashes touches upon the POWER of LOVE when folk can forget about their own personal 'feelings' and reach out in LOVE to a desperate and broken person.
