A Touch of Faith

A Touch of FaithFaith reached out her hand,

she dared hope so much;

the hem of His cloak,

could heal with a touch.

Likewise, Jairus came,

asked Jesus lay hands;

on his dying girl,

restore health again.

Trust took more than hope,

action was required;

faith involves movement,

do as He inspires.

Desperate the need,

the hope for so much;

faith fueled the movement,

healing through His touch.

Power is present,

in faith to stand strong;

to move where He calls,

be healed and belong.

Just as to Jairus,

Jesus still would say,

“Do not be afraid,

just believe.” (today)

We’re not a bother,

He will always hear;

our sorrows and hopes,

and He’ll silence fear.

(Responding to Mark 5:21-43)

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that You sent Your Son to be Your hands and heart to the world. Thank You Jesus, that You showed us the way to make the living God tangible, through the touch of Your hand. Thank You that the very same power that lived in You, moving mightily through miracles that changed the hearts of many, lives in each of us who abide in You. Forgive us for not fully submitting ourselves to Your plans and purposes for our lives, and teach us how to be available so that we might be Your hands and heart to the hurting. May many come to know Your comfort and care through our willingness to be available. Let those who are looking, find a forever faith in You. Amen.
