woman touches hem


You never got to know my name, but I am Basya, which means daughter of God.
I am not young anymore, and you women know how I felt. I was no longer able to carry a child. No more “woman” time. Then the bleeding began. I didn’t think too much of it in the beginning. But it just never gave up! I was always unclean because of the blood. I was getting weak from losing so much. So I began going to the physicians. They didn’t know what was going on. So they just gave up on me. But I just kept on bleeding. Sometimes even there were clots! Always having to wear a napkin, but that didn’t help much. I was changing all the time.
Then Miriam, a friend of mine, told me about seeing this man, Jesus. He was more than a good teacher. He did miracles! The lepers were being healed! Even those possessed by demons were being set free! Miriam told me that Jesus could heal me. Could he really do that, when all the physicians have given up with me? I have been suffering with this for 12 years!
After thinking about this, I decided to go find this Jesus. What would it hurt? Well, I started watching Him. I had heard many stories about what He had done and how He had taught on love. Maybe – just maybe – He could do this for me. He doesn’t have to touch me. I want to be healed! I want to be whole again! I want Levi, my husband, to want me again.
So there I was, amongst the crowd. So many people! How am I ever going to get to Him? I decide to crawl on the ground. If I can just touch the hem of His garment. I know I will be healed. Yes! He’s within my reach now. I touch the hem. I feel the power go through me. I feel the bleeding stop. Oh, praise God!
And then Jesus stopped. He asked who touched Him. What am I going to do? How did He know I touched His garment? I stand up and say it was me. I can see the love in His eyes and it’s as if He can see right through me. ” Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace and be freed from your suffering.” There is so much joy in my heart.
Levi, I’m coming home whole! Praise God!
Mark 5:24b–34
