Good Afternoon Trinity,

I hope you are all doing well and having a blessed week. We all at one time or another struggle with the circumstances of our life. We are supposed to know that the Lord is with us and that there nothing in this life that can keep us apart. But sometimes we lose sight of our relationship with the Lord because we get caught up in the stress of our situation. Here is a scripture reading that will help you when you think there is no hope for your troubles.

Mark 5: 21 – 34

Is it hard for you to imagine what this woman must have been going through in her life? To have been ill for 12 years with no end in sight. To have spent all her money and belongings on doctors to no avail. Is it hard for you to imagine what it must be like to live in a situation where you have lost all hope? I hope you can’t imagine this. I hope you have never felt this kind of hopelessness in your circumstances.

You see sometimes through no fault of our own we find ourselves in a situation such as this woman had when we feel like we are standing alone to face the trials life has handed us. This scripture today, if you have never read it before will give you hope in your life. It’s a hope that is eternal because it is a hope in Jesus Christ in your life.

A woman who had most likely lost all hope and had nowhere else to turn had now found hope and a regained strength in a Savior she had never met before. Can you imagine what it would have been like to witness her meeting with Jesus as she reached out to Him in that crowded place. “If I can just touch His clothes I will be made well.” Was it her desperation that caused her to reach out to Jesus in the first place? Of course it was, the stars are brightest when you’re standing in the dark. But when she reached out to Him, He was there, and everything change.

Do you wait until your standing in the dark before you look to Jesus to save you from your trials? Or do you walk headlong into your trials with Jesus at your side? He has never promised us a life free from pain or tribulations. But He has promised us to never leave us nor forsake us. All we have to do is reach for Him and be assured He will be there. Go ahead, reach out for His garment.

God Bless,
Pastor Dave
