Her Faithful Touch
That is what they call me. They tell me that I must stay away from the others. I am not welcomed in the marketplace. I am not welcomed among my people. Many of my friends want to be with me and support me, but they are not allowed to because of the laws. I can’t really blame them. After all, who wants to be around someone with a problem like mine.
I am without energy, and my body continues to fail me. I live out each day drained and grasping for just a small amount of strength to get me through another moment. The failing of my body has caused me to lose track of time, but if I remember right, it has been over twelve years that I have now suffered.
The physicians tell me that they can do nothing for me. Their attempts at healing this plague have done nothing but intensify the problem. I am poor and destitute. Everything I had was spent to try and rid myself of the crimson flow that stops me from living a full and happy life.
I am not going to shut myself up in this house any longer. I am going to go out among the people. Though I may be ridiculed and shunned, at least I can avoid letting these four walls smother me into eternal darkness.
I was told that the man they call Jesus is near today. He healed the daughter of Jairus, and he is crossing over this way. Perhaps He has the cure that no one else has.
I see him walking through the crowds. The pushing and shoving on my body causes me to fall, but somehow I manage to pick myself back up and continue weaving in and out. I have to get closer to Him. I just know that if I can touch Him that I will find healing.
I’m getting closer to Him! If only the people that knock me down would realize how badly that I need this. I’m nearing Him. I just have to stretch a little bit farther and I will be able to touch His garment. When I do, then my disease will go away. I will be healed. I know it in my heart to be true. Just one stretch of my arm. I am so weak, but I must do it.
There! I touched Him. I feel a surge through my body. A power so strong that words cannot even begin to describe it. I feel a relief that I have never felt before. For the first time, I know what it is like to be free from my bondage. He turns to me. His loving eyes look directly into mine. He speaks…
And He said to her, "Daughter, your faith has made you well. Go in peace, and be healed of your affliction." – Mark 5:34 (NKJV)
