And he said unto her, Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole;
    go in peace, and be whole of thy plague. -- Mark 5 verse 34

In the eye of the beholder, broken, jagged and mixed pieces of
tiles can be viewed as nothing but rubbish to be discarded or a
wonderful mosaic in the making.  
What tips the scale for
salvage is in the eye filled with hope, seeing its uniquely
beautiful transformation by faith.

    And a certain woman, which had an issue of blood twelve
    years, And had suffered many things of many physicians, and
    had spent all that she had, and was nothing bettered, but
    rather grew worse, -- Mark 5 verses 25 & 26

In scripture she’s not named, yet we can all identify with
aspects of her life:   

  • Broken, confused and troubled in spirit …
  • Disappointed by the promises made by others …
  • Constantly searching for a “solution”  …
  • Depleted resources …
  • Lost years.

In spite of how bad things looked, giving up hope was not an
option, nor could she afford to discard her faith.  These two
aspects of her life would prove to be her most valuable
treasure, not her money.  Once it was directed toward the
proper source, she received the ultimate results, something of
which her money could never buy.   

    When she had heard of Jesus, came in the press behind, and
    touched his garment.  For she said, If I may touch but his
    clothes, I shall be whole.  And straightway the fountain of her
    blood was dried up; and she felt in her body that she was
    healed of that plague.  -- Mark 5 verses 27-29


In like manner, our insistence to behold the issues of life with
hope and faith in Jesus Christ is crucial to our overall well-
being too, especially over long extended periods of time.  
Continued confidence in His ability to solve our every issue is
much too valuable to dispose of.  It’s what He uses to
transform the broken, jagged and mixed pieces of our life into
a whole new creation revitalized with peace.
