Jesus heals boy



I am Chenya (הֵנְיָה), and this means Grace of the Lord. But my life feels anything but grace from the Lord. I have had a very sad heart for so long I cannot remember the last time life was joyful.
Let me begin by saying that I had a wonderful marriage with my man, Aharon (אַהֲרׄן). We were blessed with a boy, Amir. Amir was the love of my life. I was unable to have any more boys after him, so I doted on him. You could say I spoiled the boy. What mother wouldn’t, when all they were having were girls?
Then my Aharon died in battle. My heart literally broke in two. If it wasn’t for Amir, I think I would have died, too. I wanted to, you know. But I had the kids to think about. In time, the girls moved out and married. Amir found a girl too, but then he got sick. Really sick.
As we were walking through town taking Amir to his burial spot, for he had died, I was without condolence. Who would take care of me? The girls had their own families to worry about. But my Amir, he always made sure I was taken care of. And now, here is gone – gone forever. I don’t like being selfish and think of me at this time, but that is reality. My only boy is gone, my husband is gone.
Then this man, Jesus, walked right up to Amir’s pallet. He looked at me and said not to weep. Does he not know this is my only son we are going to bury? But then, this man touched the pallet and spoke to my son. Jesus told Amir to get up! And you know what? He did! My son is ALIVE! This Jesus – He must be at least a prophet or, do I dare say it, the Messiah?
I can’t put into words how I felt at that exact moment when I saw my son rise off of that pallet. The joy. Oh, the joy that I felt was the best joy I have ever felt in my entire life! My son was dead, but now he is alive. And this Jesus? Whatever He wants me to do, I will do. He gave my son back to me, so I want to give back to Him.
Taken from Luke 7:11-17
