We all have issues. 

 We all can think at times we can handle them on our own. Sometimes shame keeps us hiding our issues afraid they are just too bad to mention. 

 Maybe it is a trust issue? We don’t know who to trust? 
So our issues stick around day after day- month after month and soon it is year after year and the issues are still there.   

Just like the woman with the blood issue for years. What was her turning point? Her defining moment when she had had enough and was determined no matter the cost- no matter the risk -she was going to see Jesus?
Did she get overwhelmed by the crowds and want to give up and go on back home? 


She pressed in, she got low, she even had to crawl, but she surrendered all fear and doubt. She was almost crushed by the weight of the crowd pressing in on top and all around her, but she had faith and hope that strengthened her every step to believe without a doubt that if she simply just extended her arm to touch even Jesus’ garment, she would be healed. Did she have a few failed attempts that came up short before she finally got a piece of Jesus’ robe? What made her keep pressing on?
She knew Jesus was the Only Power that could make her whole again. She was tired of hiding in shame. She was ready for a new season. She was ready to stand tall and get back in the game of life. She was ready for the bleeding to STOP!  

So today if this is you; REACH

No matter what your issues are- REACH! 

REACH out and touch Jesus. Only He can make you well, healed, and whole. He is worth the risk. He is always trustworthy. Live well, live blessed!

Jesus said, “Daughter, you took a risk trusting me, and now you’re healed and whole. Live well, live blessed!” ~Luke 8:48 MSG 

3 Things To Do 

1 Corinthians 13

10 We know only a portion of the truth, and what we say about God is always incomplete. But when the Complete arrives, our incompletes will be canceled.

11 When I was an infant at my mother’s breast, I gurgled and cooed like any infant. When I grew up, I left those infant ways for good.

12 We don’t yet see things clearly. We’re squinting in a fog, peering through a mist. But it won’t be long before the weather clears and the sun shines bright! We’ll see it all then, see it all as clearly as God sees us, knowing him directly just as he knows us!

13 But for right now, until that completeness, we have three things to do to lead us toward that consummation: Trust steadily in God, hope unswervingly, love extravagantly. 

And the best of the three is love.
