In the fifth chapter of Mark, the story of the woman with the issue of blood for twelve years is given. Today, as I was pondering this, it occurred to me that her entire life was affected since during Biblical times, she would have been considered “unclean” and ostracized from family and loved ones. As I thought about her healing when she touched the hem of Christ’s garment, I wondered if maybe she had been praying with Psalms 139:7-10 where it states, “Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence? If I ascend up into heaven, thou are there. If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.” Her healing was the Christ revealing to her, her true identity and never being separated from God/Good.
Also, it was apparent to me that there must have been humility in her thought, since she would have had to be kneeling to touch the hem of His garment; she couldn’t have been standing erect.
