I love this picture. I was thinking that if those not of faith looked at it, or perhaps those who have not found healing, they would see something totally different from what I see. It would probably bother them that this woman was at the feet of Jesus, that she was not strong enough and that she needed Him. Ah, human pride.
For me I see love. A love of Jesus. An open heart that allows Him in. A heart that knows that of herself she can do nothing but with Him she can do all things. She knows of His good...she knows what He has done for her. It does not matter if she needs help or that she cannot do it alone...she does not need to do it alone..it is a lifting of the weight. An allowing the love in to heal.
Do you allow the love in to heal? Do you open your heart to Jesus or do you run away? Is it ok with you that you cannot do it alone, or do you get stuck in your pride?
This is a beautiful week...a week that speaks of our salvation through the suffering, death and resurrection of Jesus. Sin is conquered. All sin, even abortion. Ask Him for the grace to open your heart and allow His healing love in...trust in that love for you,surrender to love, let go as He takes your sin to the cross..do not stay alone in your suffering...embrace His feet knowing that in truth it makes you stronger, not weaker, because you are then walking with your Redeemer who will never abandon you.
