Healing: Faith meets the Faithful One

Reaching out through the dusty feet of a crowd, she grasps his hem, and hopes for healing. 
Faith meets the Faithful One. 
A current of power passes through her grasping, hoping hands into her bleeding depths. …

It wasn’t about the outer garment. Gifts are rarely accurately reflected by their packaging. It was all about her inner being.

A woman’s womb is a sanctuary. All who rest within are there by Holy designation; protected, nurtured, and sealed until the appointed day. 
The Hebrew word for ‘womb’ is rooted in ‘compassion’. The womb-like love of God is merciful and tenderhearted. “For the Lord comforts his people and will have compassion on his afflicted ones.” Isaiah 49:13. “The Lord is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love.” Psalm 103:8. A woman’s womb-vessel and the love of God share a sacred communion of selflessness, sacrifice, and deliverance.

… A broken womb in the depths of a suffering soul who spent all she had in failure, was healed in an instant by the One who sees all hidden things.

He still seeks those who need His touch. Ever humble, He keeps the focus on our truthful revelation of need and faith: “Take heart, daughter, your faith has healed you.” Matthew 9:22. “Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace and be freed from your suffering.” Mark 5:34.

I wrote it Monday afternoon and something shifted inside.

Then we went to prayer meeting after supper.

After prayer meeting was over, one of the gentlemen there looked across the table at me and asked, “Do you need healing?”


“As soon as we had started praying tonight, God impressed upon me that you need healing. I think we need to stop and pray for you. I think God wants to heal you.”

The room was filled with emotion as I was prayed over by our small group of prayer warriors. It was brief. Meaningful.

And I left our prayer meeting feeling cared for. Just as my reading of the woman healed had led me to the story of Hagar in Genesis, I was experiencing for myself, “The God who Sees”. He sees me. He loves me. He wants to heal me.

I haven’t been sure what to do since then. I have continued to take my medications and carry on. I don’t know if it is a physical healing or emotional, mental or spiritual healing. Maybe all of it? I don’t know if that shifting feeling was it or if it happened during prayer or if it is yet to come.

I do know that my PMS on this first month of Cytomel (a synthetic T3) has been absolutely horrible. I haven’t known what to do to alleviate it. When the shifting happened – the PMS was gone. There isn’t any reason I can think of for it to be over – it just disappeared and I am thankful.
