“Daughter, your faith has made you well. Go in peace. Your suffering is over.”
(Mark 5:34, NLT)

Maybe all you have [is] a crazy hunch and a high hope. You have nothing to give. But you are hurting. And all you have to offer him is your hurt.

If that describes you, note carefully … one person [whom Christ] commended … for having faith. It wasn’t a wealthy giver. It wasn’t a loyal follower. It wasn’t an acclaimed teacher. It was a shame-struck, penniless outcast – [a woman who had been bleeding for twelve years] – who clutched onto her hunch that he could and her hope that he would.

Which, by the way, isn’t a bad definition of faith. A conviction that he can and a hope that he will.
