It's gonna be a beautiful day here in Missouri. I am off today to get ready for a Garage Sale. But before I get started on my long list of things to get done today, I am taking a moment to sip some coffee and just touch the hem of my Saviour's garment. It is amazing what just a touch can do to a girl's heart.
In the passage above we read of a woman who in desperation is willing to go to great lengths to just get close enough to touch the garments that Jesus was wearing. She probably had exhausted all her resources~ tried filling the emptiness in her life. Yet~ she had heard of a man who had performed miracles and made people whole. She knew enough about Jesus to know that He was strong enough to heal her suffering and mend her brokenness. She knew if she could just get close enough to touch Him that she could be made new and whole.
Her little leap of faith turned out to actually be her greatest act of faith. He mended her broken life and she went away a new woman~ in every sense of the word.
When I was a young girl I too touched the hem of His garment and He made me whole and I have never been the same. It only takes a touch.
