Unexpected Hope

25 Now a certain woman had a flow of blood for twelve years, 26 and had suffered many things from many physicians. She had spent all that she had and was no better, but rather grew worse. 27 When she heard about Jesus, she came behind Him in the crowd and touched His garment. 28 For she said, “If only I may touch His clothes, I shall be made well.”
29 Immediately the fountain of her blood was dried up, and she felt in her body that she was healed of the affliction. 30 And Jesus, immediately knowing in Himself that power had gone out of Him, turned around in the crowd and said, “Who touched My clothes?”
31 But His disciples said to Him, “You see the multitude thronging You, and You say, ‘Who touched Me?’”
32 And He looked around to see her who had done this thing. 33 But the woman, fearing and trembling, knowing what had happened to her, came and fell down before Him and told Him the whole truth. 34 And He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well. Go in peace, and be healed of your affliction.” Mark 5:25-34 New King James Version

This is such a wonderful passage of scripture. Her is a woman who has suffered for 12 years. She has not been able to be around people due to her issue of blood, because in her culture she was considered unclean. She had also spent all the money she had on physicians, non of which could help her. She had done all that she could do at this point.
Then, she hears about Jesus. I have to wonder what did she hear? Did she hear about other healings? For her it had been such a long time since she had hope, now hope is here and she is willing to risk it all for her healing. She touches Jesus and is healed immediately. Jesus, does not condemn her, he shows her love and compassion.

She desired a healing, and she knew that Jesus could provide her healing. She not only had hope but she faith. She believed that He could heal her.

Jesus will do the same for us on any issue or situation that we may have in our lives.
