Woman with Issue of Blood
It had been twelve long years and she had suffered a great deal.
She was marked as “unclean” and tried everything to heal.
No man would love her, the people called her cursed,
She spent all of her money on doctors but instead of getting better the problem grew worse.
This once radiant woman, capable and strong, was now fearful and timid, with no where to belong.
Each day she woke suffering as her symptoms appear,
seeing red, red sheets, red clothes, no remedy near.
To many she was known as, “that woman with the issue of blood”,
alone, tormented, lacking any kind of love.
Until one day she heard a large commotion,
the pig farmers were yelling about an outlandish notion.
“Our pigs rushed down to the water and drowned”,
but this was then followed by one man’s joyous sound.
He looked just like the towns demon-possesed man,
but he wore clothes, a smile and kept yelling, “Jesus Can!”.
She thought, if God did it for him, surely he can do it for me.
That night she went to bed with faith to be set free.
The next day she woke and a crowd already grew.
Unworthy to join them she knew just what to do.
“If I just touch his clothes, I will be healed”, she thought.
She snuck up behind him, and immediately the bleeding did stop.
Jesus knowing his power had been released,
turned around and saw her saying, “the bleeding has ceased”.
“Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace.”
Just like this woman, it is God’s will you be released and live in peace.
Jesus says, “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid” (John 14:27 NIV).
