~ "Miracles and faith..."

And had suffered many things of many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse, When she had heard of Jesus, came in the press behind, and touched his garment. (Mark 5:26-27)

Faith.  That is what she had.  Faith that just by touching the hem of Jesus' garment she would be healed.  

How many of us have that kind of faith?  Miracles do happen still today - I've seen them - I believe in them.  I believe in the power of prayer.  I believe in the Word of God.  President-Elect John F. Kennedy was once quoted as saying "you can believe in miracles but you can't always rely on them".  

For some, the miracle they seek is not part of God's plan.  Sometimes the miracle is not the "good news" that you might expect it to be.  Sometimes the miracle is something simple.  Sometimes the miracle is larger than life itself.  Sometimes it's as simple as a rainbow.  God's promise.  

We each walk a different path, but hopefully we are all headed in the same direction.  Don't look for a miracle, although one may occur...have the faith that God will give you exactly what you need - that in itself is the miracle.
