“Your faith has restored you to health.”
Even having little faith can do great wonders. This woman in the reading truly believed in what Jesus could do for her and so she came to him without fear or doubt. And instantly she was healed from her physical sickness. Jesus always has the time for us and is always waiting on us to make the first move and choose him. He is ready to listen to what we need, of what we hide away from others, to reveal our true selves to him. We need not be ashamed, but consoled in a friend that will always show us mercy and compassion.
Let us take that step to dialogue with Jesus today and break the barriers that harden our hearts that we try so hard to avoid and seal up. Let us break out of our securities and ask Jesus to help us, to depend on him and who alone can heal us and give us life.
