Today’s blog picture is a small part of a larger picture that sits on a wall in Magdala, Israel. It depicts a story from the book of Mark 5:25-34. It is a story of a woman who was ill and bleeding for 12 years. When Jesus came to her town she risked everything to just touch His garment. A woman who was bleeding was not allowed to be in town. She came at great risk, yet she came in faith believing that Jesus was the one who could help her. She got on her hands and knees and touched His garment. Jesus asked, “Who touched me?” The disciples with Him could not answer, there were so many people around. Once she acknowledges that she touched Him, Jesus replies, “Daughter, because you dared to believe, your faith has healed you. Go with peace in your heart, and be free from your suffering.” I am confident that Jesus’ was likely touched by her desperation and her courage to overcome fear and to act by faith. Let faith arise in the midst of the storms in our lives.
I do not know what challenge you are facing today. But this I do know, no matter what you are dealing with, Jesus loves you and if you seek Him, He will be there for you. May you have the courage and the faith to reach out to Him. May your eyes see His grace, feel His grace, know His grace and receive His grace. In the midst of your challenge may you find a peace that cannot be explained apart from one word, Jesus.
