IN HIM IS LIFE
“Hopeless. The same thing every single day. When will this suffering ever end? This is no way to live!”
She must’ve been quite rich in the past as she has had the money to pay doctors off continuously for twelve years straight. She must’ve lived a better life before her illness as her desperation speaks of a yearning to go back to how it was before her insufferable disease came into her life.
Day after day. Night after night. She must’ve said the same things over and over again. Like a mantra she’s taught herself to cling to, probably not because she believed, but because there was nothing else to live for. “Hopeless. The same thing every single day. When will this suffering ever end? This is no way to live!”
And then Jesus came.
At just one touch, hope returned.
At just one touch, the seemingly never-ending cycle was broken.
At just one touch, she found what it meant to truly live again. To be whole and free again.
We may have found ourselves caught in a joyless existence like this in the past, or maybe r someone dear to us is in this situation right now. Whatever it is, it can’t be too far removed from the joyless life of that poor bleeding woman in the crowd.
Like that woman –
we may be without hope,
But like that woman, we can be all that again. We just need JESUS.
It takes just one touch to again be able to live life to the fullest.
For in Him is life… at just one touch.
Open up and let Him touch your heart today.
