Close Enough To Touch

A friend talked about the story of the of the woman with with the issue of blood who in faith reach out and touched the Savior’s robe and was healed. That story always touched me. I have often imagined myself pressing my way through the crowd to touch the hem of his robe, and then falling short.

Several years ago I had the opportunity to perform in a production of Women at the Well. One of the scenes that I participated in was bathing the Saviors feet. During the production the spirit was so strong that the feet of gentleman who portrayed Jesus Christ were drenched with my tears when the scene was over.

The scene of the woman of great faith was also portrayed. This is the song that was sang at that time.

With mental health issues we often feel like if we can only get close enough to touch then we will be healed. I know that He is mindful of us, and with us. It is so hard. So so hard, but one of my favorite things is knowing that He went through the things He did so we would not be alone when we went through our Gethsemanes.
