Trust in a Higher Power

Matthew 9:20-22
A woman suffering hemorrhages for twelve years came up behind him and touched the tassel on his cloak. She said to herself, “If only I can touch his cloak, I shall be cured.” Jesus turned around and saw her, and said, “Courage, daughter! Your faith has saved you.” And from that hour the woman was cured.

Is there something you are struggling with? Is there a problem, hurt, or issue that you can’t seem to shake? This woman suffered a horrible medical problem for 12 years…one that would have made her “unclean” in the eyes of her community. She not only was suffering physically but emotionally and spiritually. But she persevered and put her hope in Jesus. Her hope was in a Higher Power…a Love that would not forsake her. What wound(s) do you carry? It may take time…it may not happen the way we want it to…but if we persevere and reach out to Jesus (God, Divine Source) in faith…healing, wholeness and new life are assured.
