And he said to her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well. Go in peace. Your suffering is over.”

- Jesus, to a woman who had been sick, in Mark 5:34

The woman had been in agony for years and had tried everything to get healing. This was her final chance. Jesus was passing by through the town where she had become an outcast and she knew she needed try to at least get near Him. She was desperate for healing.

I don’t think I have ever been this desperate for healing from Jesus. I don’t even think I have been in such a desperate situation where I needed to come in contact with Him so badly. Have you? Are you in a desperate situation now? What would reaching out to Him in faith be like? What would it be like if He was gentle and kind to you and even healed the places inside that are wounded or broken? Take some time to reflect on these questions as a daughter or son of Jesus.
