If I could just touch the hem of his garment

17 Oct

What Rev. Pastor Lionel Sneed says is true. His words give me hope for tomorrow.

In my experience when sickness, illness and liabilities come that’s when you find out who your true friends are. Sadly as time has passed and I’ve had to drop out of certain activities and organizations those folks who said they were my friends and claimed the Liked if not Loved me have stop being my friends. To them I’m a failure. However I’m the same person inside that I was when I was 18 years old. I have the same hopes, dreams, goals and desires its just that now my body has weakened and in some cases no longer obeys my commands. Sometimes I wonder what these same people would say to Evangelist and Christian Speaker Joni Earaekson Tada who has been a quadriplegic since a diving accident when she was a teenager.

Matthew 9:20-22  And, behold, a woman, which was diseased with an issue of blood twelve years, came behind him, and touched the hem of his garment: For she said within herself, If I may but touch his garment, I shall be whole. But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour.

What do you do when all reasonable options for victory in your life have failed? I mean, the bible says the woman with the issue of blood was sick for twelve long years. She grappled within the confinements of limited options, for the scripture say that she tried everything but to no avail was she relieved.

We’ve heard the expression “desperate times call for desperate measures.” This woman was desperate for an end to her…

      Thanks for your comment Sheldon. Always glad to hear your words. A quote from the Great Bard came to mind this morning.

      “Out, out, brief candle! Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player that struts and frets his hour upon the stage and is heard no more. It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.”
      William Shakespeare, Macbeth

    “When one door closes, another opens”, and losing friends that you have outgrown, or ones’ who are travellling a different path, is a good thing, as it opens the way to the ‘inner journey’ and other opportunities! When I was very ill and convalescing from major feet surgery ( took me 4 years to walk) I lost all of my friends, and none of my family came to help me, although I was always there to help them when they needed me. I felt touched by angels at my hardest moments, and I made friends with myself and a friendly dog in my neighborhood! Victory is different things for different people. Suffering and experiencing limitation and much pain can make the soul grow incredibly fast, as it lets down the barriers between this world and the unseen worlds. Often it is those, who travel ‘the road less traveled’, and ‘march to a different drum beat’ who are the true prophets and transformers- in the best sense of the word-of the collective! I have had the opportunity to heal many people( through touch, words and the grace of God) healing them from terminal illnesses, like cancer and leukeamia, and mental illness too; yet only when the indlvidual is ready for that healing and it serves ‘what they need to do and experience in life’! Has this gift been a blessing or a curse? It has lost me jobs and friends, yet those who are helped are most grateful, and that is what matters to me :). We all have different missions, and make contracts before coming here to fulfill. WE judge whether or not we are successful, it is our judgement alone. And failure is a key ingredient for success. Question: How many light bulbs did Edison create before he got it right? Answer- Thousands. blessings, Bridget 🙂
