To touch the hem of His robe

I haven't had much to post in the last week. We have been praising Him for the good news and praying for guidance to get through the rest of the treatment. We have an appointment tomorrow with the plastic surgeon and with Dr Cody. 

Big decisions to make. 

What provided Zane his only source of nourishment for three months might have to go so they don't kill me. This won't be a complete restoration. As advanced as treatments have progressed against the fight against breast cancer, they aren't complete. 

Matthew 9:20-22
"Just then a woman who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years came up behind him and touched the edge of his cloak. She said to herself, “If I only touch his cloak, I will be healed.” Jesus turned and saw her. “Take heart, daughter,” he said, “your faith has healed you.” And the woman was healed at that moment. "

Jesus can and did heal from a distance, she didn't need to touch His cloak but she took action to pursue Jesus so she might be healed. 

The woman who was not allowed to worship God in the temple for 12 years still had so much faith in His Son that she reached out for Him. 

A woman in Jesus' time, not allowed in the temple and even without "being unclean" was not valued in society, but Jesus valued women. The unclean, the undervalued, the broken, the sick are His specialty because of their faith they reach out for their Savior, their Healer. 

YOUR Savior, YOUR Healer. 


How many times in the last four weeks have I yearned to reach out and touch His robe and have complete restoration. 

But then again, maybe I don't want to be what I was before.
