I have always been amazed by the woman who had been suffering from hemorrhages for twelve years (Mark 5: 24 – 34). She had never seen Jesus, had only heard of him, and had faith that Jesus could heal her.

“She is down to her last prayer. And on the day, we encounter her, she’s about to pray it. By the time she gets to Jesus, he is surrounded by people. He’s on his way to help the daughter of Jairus, the most important man in the community. What are the odds that he will interrupt an urgent mission with a high official to help the likes of her? Very few. But what are the odds that she will survive if she doesn’t take a chance? Fewer still. So she takes a chance.

‘If I can jut touch his clothes,’ she thinks, ‘I will be healed.’ Risky decision. To touch him, she will have to touch the people. If one of them recognizes her… But what choice does she have? She has no money, no clout, no friends, no solutions. All she had is a crazy hunch that Jesus can help and a high hope that he will… There was no guarantee, of course. She hoped he’d respond… she longed for it… but she didn’t know if he would. All she knew was that he was good. That’s faith.

Faith is not the belief that God will do what you want. Faith is the belief that God will do what is right. A healthy lady never would have appreciated the power of a touch of the hem of his robe. But this woman was sick… and when her dilemma met his dedication, a miracle occurred. Her part in the healing was very small. All she did was extend her arm through the crowd. ‘If I can touch him.’… Healing begins when we do something. Healing begins when we reach out. Healing starts when we take a step.” (Max Lucado)

I like that: healing starts when we take a step. We need to take a step in the right direction. I believe it starts when our heart is right. It is hard to trust, hard to have faith but healing begins when we out that fear behind us and go forward. Life is too short to stay bitter, angry, ornery… why make yourself miserable? Would you rather be bitter or happy? No, you cannot have or be both!

Healing begins when we do something… Are you ready to begin? Are you ready to do something? Are you ready to be healed? Are you ready to step out in faith? What step of faith do you need to take? Let’s Get You a Healin’! God bless and God’s go this!
