Oh, how my heart aches for this woman. And how I admire her. Suffering from a blood disorder, she would have been considered unclean and unworthy of attending worship at the temple or being around others. Ostracized and lonely, where did she find the courage to stretch out her fingers and touch Jesus’ cloak? Her act of faith was rewarded with an instantaneous healing that changed her life forever. This reminds me that, no matter what befalls me, all I need to do is reach for Jesus. One touch from Him brings hope.
