Have you ever read or heard the story about the woman who touched Jesus’ robes as He walked by (Matthew 9:20)? This woman had been suffering for 12 years with an affliction that made her “unclean” in the eyes of those of her time. What we know was that she had been bleeding, and I can guess I know what her condition was. I’m pretty sure I’ve lived it. This woman, because of her illness, was pretty much an outcast. Lord knows I’ve lived that! I mean, all of us girls who haven’t been able to join the mommy club or have done so in unconventional ways, know what it’s like to be cast out from our friends, family or society-even when they may not do it intentionally. At any rate, this woman had faith, and she believed that Jesus was the Christ, and so firmly believed in who He was, that she was sure if she just touched him, grasped a piece of his robes as He walked by, that she would be healed. Her faith could move some mountains. I can just hear what she had to have been saying in her head.
