TITLE: A Desperate Measure:Mark 5:25

This is my brief version of the story of the woman in the bible with the issue of blood. I think it would a good inclusion for a daily ladies devotional, or something to make you think a bit more about this true life circumstance.
Weak legs stood unsteadily beneath her as His boat began to come into view. Her heart leapt within her at the thought of being in the presence of the Messiah. When she’d heard that Jesus was teaching at the lake, she just had to be there. Only recently, she had been in Galilee to make trades, when she saw something miraculous. The leper, from the town gate was walking…no, running and shouting that he had been made whole! She might’ve thought him to be delusional till she saw him come near. His arms waved about furiously as he exclaimed that Jesus had touched him and made him clean. Her eyes beheld smooth, pinkish skin on both his arms and face. He had been made whole!

The crowd pressed in even as Jesus exited the fishing boat. She could see His head and shoulders as she weaved her way through the swarm of people. Jairus, a synogue ruler, had fallen to the ground draping himself over the Messiah’s feet. She could hear him pleading loudly. If she could only get close enough to touch her Lord, He would heal her. She was sure of it!

With labored breath she stepped forward, reaching out her hand. The tips of her fingers brushed the hem of His cloak.

She felt something. It was almost like a burning sensation. Yet strangely, it didn’t hurt at all. Every part of her body and spirit recognized that she was no longer infirmed but had been restored! Her Messiah had healed her!
The sea of people came to a halt when Jesus did. “Who touched me”? He asked. Jesus had felt the healing power go out from Him, the moment she had touched Him. His eyes scanned the crowd. She knew that she had to come forward. The truth bubbled forth from her lips as she knelt, trembling, at his feet.

“Daughter” He said. As He spoke, she found her fears slipping away. She drank in His words like honey. He continued, “…your faith has healed you. Go in peace and be freed from your suffering”. His words held both such authority and such love. She marveled. The Son of God had looked her full in the face and loved her, and healed her.
