And a woman was there who had been subject
to bleeding for twelve years.
She had suffered a great deal under the care of many doctors
and had spent all she had,
yet instead of getting better she grew worse.
When she heard about Jesus,
she came up behind him in the crowd
and touched his cloak, because she thought,
"If I just touch his clothes, I will be healed."
Immediately her bleeding stopped and she felt in her body that she was
freed from her suffering.
At once Jesus realized that power had gone out from him.
He turned around in the crowd and asked
"Who touched my clothes?"
"You see the people crowding against you," his disciples answered,
"and yet you can ask, 'Who touched me?'
"But Jesus kept looking around to see who had done it.
Then the woman, knowing what had happened to her,
came and fell at his feet and,
trembling with fear, told him the whole truth.
He said to her, "Daughter, your faith has healed you.
Go in peace and be freed from your suffering."
One of my favorite songs. My FAVORITE story in the Bible - 'cause, girl, I have been that woman.ReplyDelete

I only first heard this song a few weeks ago and was so touched by it then and again this morning. Thanks so much for sharing it with us.ReplyDelete
I love this song. I first heard Nicole sing it at a Woman of Faith Conference and I was completely in tears when she finished. It is so awesome and powerful! Thanks for sharing it.ReplyDelete
I just finished The Shack. I loved it. Would love to chat about what out you think. I have been too chicken to post on it yet.
Loved your post/prayer yesteray. Beautiful! And so like my heart on most days.
YES-I just saw this video on Gospel Music Channel and saw her CD was on sale for $5 at Lifeway. YAAHOOO. So, I got it and listen to this often I Love it.ReplyDelete
Ooh - I was gonna do a Nicole song today too, but changed at the last minute! This song was sung at the Easter program we attended. It was so amazing, especially in the moment of knowing of our Saviour dying for us and how people just wanted to touch Him to say they touched Him - I'm so thankful that we can feel His presence and don't have to physically touch Him today.ReplyDelete
Such a beautiful song, and absolutely LOVE this video. Thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
