Pulling On The Pant Leg Of Your Master!

Have you ever had a small dog or puppy pull on your pants leg while your walking?

You barely even feel it right?

It's like "Oh my gosh little dog, you aren't doing anything to me, leave me alone!"

But to the dog he is probably thinking..."If only I can just bug her enough, she'll touch me!"

Well the other day I seen this cute little yorkie pulling at the pant leg of it's master and it reminded me of  the story in the bible of the lady who just wanted to touch the hem of Jesus's garment so she could be healed.

Luke 8:40-49 (New Living Translation)  Jesus Heals in Response to Faith
On the other side of the lake the crowds welcomed Jesus, because they had been waiting for him. Then a man named Jairus, a leader of the local synagogue, came and fell at Jesus’ feet, pleading with him to come home with him. His only daughter,[a] who was about twelve years old, was dying.
As Jesus went with him, he was surrounded by the crowds. A woman in the crowd had suffered for twelve years with constant bleeding,[b] and she could find no cure. Coming up behind Jesus, she touched the fringe of his robe. Immediately, the bleeding stopped. “Who touched me?” Jesus asked. Everyone denied it, and Peter said, “Master, this whole crowd is pressing up against you.”
But Jesus said, “Someone deliberately touched me, for I felt healing power go out from me.” When the woman realized that she could not stay hidden, she began to tremble and fell to her knees in front of him. The whole crowd heard her explain why she had touched him and that she had been immediately healed. “Daughter,” he said to her, “your faith has made you well. Go in peace.”

Sometimes we go so many days carrying around our sickness, sadness and discouragement before we turn to God. This lady had this sickness for 12 years before she became desperate enough to reach out and touch him! I'll be honest I have some issues that I've been holding on to, but I'm ready to reach out and touch the hem of his garment! What are YOU waiting for? Let's make this Easter memorable, let it be the year we get desperate enough to push through the crowds and seek him! Who cares what people think! Who cares what people may say! We need to be made whole! I encourage you today whatever it is that God has placed on your heart today, press through all the doubt and touch our God, be made WHOLE!

Be blessed by this song! Nicole C Mullen One Touch
