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, 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. And Jesus, immediately knowing in himself that virtue had gone out of him, turned him about in the press, and said, "Who touched my clothes?" And his disciples said unto him, "Thou seest the multitude thronging thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me?" And he looked round about to see her that had done this thing. But the woman fearing and trembling, knowing what was done in her, came and fell down before him, and told him all the truth. And he said unto her, "Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace, and be whole of thy plague." Mark 5:25-34 

We have issues. We are not perfect. Our lives are not perfect. Your issue might not be the same as that of the next person, but still, issues exist. We often tell anyone who listens about our issues. In some instances we are encouraged or moved by what they say. At other times, the people we share with are in no position to help or direct us to someone who can help. Because of this, we still issues.

The woman with the issue of blood dealt with it for 12 years. After visiting doctors and spending all she had to become well, her condition worsened. After trying all she knew to do, she turned to Jesus. She had faith that she could touch Jesus and be made well. With faith, she touched His garment and was healed. The woman's story teaches us to take our issues to the Lord.

In the story, Jesus was surrounded by a multitude of people. With the many people gathered around Him, Jesus still felt the woman touch His garment. Our issues are important to Jesus. He is not dealing with our issues one person at a time. He is not like us. Jesus is a miracle worker. Do not continue to live every day with issues you can give to Jesus. The woman with the issue of blood lived with the problem for 12 years. Some of you have lived with your issues longer than 12 years. Will you continue to live with them or do you have the faith to give them to Jesus?

Be blessed.
