Without justification you met her reach. Without knowing why, you enabled healing. You do not require explanation or deserving. By the overflowing of your grace you can't judge or withhold. You don't even know of her before you've healed her. Such is your love. She reached out. And this—this—you call faith: not the believing, but the reaching. Jesus, I do not understand. I do not know the outcome. I only reach out. I reach for the hem of your garment. Breath prayer: Jesus … I reach __________________ Steve Garnaas-Holmes Unfolding Light www.unfoldinglight.net
