Our Secret Weapon

DSC_0092I read one of my favorite Scripture passages this morning – the healing of both Jairus’ daughter and the woman with a hemorrhage.

I can’t tell you how many times I read it….just love it for so many reasons.  

I always zoom in on the sick woman and how she only had to reach out and touch  Jesus’ cloak.  I may not be able to stand up straight and face Jesus face-to-face, I may not even be able to kneel before him, sometimes the best I can do is to just extend a weak and shaky hand to lightly touch that tassel.

But today, it was another phrase that caught my attention.  After Jairus was told not to bother Jesus anymore because his daughter had died,
Jesus turned to Jairus and said, “Don’t be afraid, just have faith”.

“Just have faith”

So many times in the Gospels we read about Jesus speaking about the power of faith.  It’s as simple –and as difficult- as that…..just have faith

I need to reflect on that.  I need to Pray on that.  I need to ACT on that.

Care to join me?

  1. Andie, everyday I pray to have faith – to deepen my relationship with Jesus – to listen carefully to God – to follow faithfully what Jesus asks me to do – to live a life of prayer – and to not be afraid.

    Thanks for sharing this with us.

  2. In other words Jesus was telling Jairus – ‘You came to me believing that I could help your daughter. Dont lose that conviction. Trust me. See this woman’s healing? That is proof that you can trust me. That is the peace you need to wait. I am with you.’
