Embracing the Hem of His Garment






“Now there was a woman who had been suffering from hemorrhages for twelve years, and though she had spent all she had on physicians, no one could cure her. She came up behind Jesus and touched the fringe of his clothes, and immediately her hemorrhage stopped.” Luke 8:43-48

For twelve long years, she bore the weight of her affliction, seeking solace from countless physicians but finding no remedy. She stood at the crossroads of despair, yearning for an elusive change. Can you relate, dear friend, to feeling trapped in a cycle where every day resembles the last, longing for a miraculous breakthrough?

Pause for a moment and step into the shoes of this resilient woman. Imagine the physical and emotional turmoil she endured, the anguish of constant hemorrhaging coupled with the profound isolation of bearing her burden alone. With each failed attempt at healing, her hopes were dashed, and her resources depleted.
