Luke 8:43-48

43 And a woman was there who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years, but no one could heal her. 44 She came up behind him and touched the edge of his cloak, and immediately her bleeding stopped. 45 “Who touched me?” Jesus asked. When they all denied it, Peter said, “Master, the people are crowding and pressing against you.” 46 But Jesus said, “Someone touched me; I know that power has gone out from me.” 47 Then the woman, seeing that she could not go unnoticed, came trembling and fell at his feet. In the presence of all the people, she told why she had touched him and how she had been instantly healed. 48 Then he said to her, “Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace.”

These two weeks are all about faith for me. I am back to square one and completely confused. My car is no longer functional. It developed electrical issues and can not be driven and I don’t have the money to fix it. It never had issues before. And comparatively, the value of the car isn’t going to be worth the money put into it to fix it, so I am without a vehicle. I can no longer go to Living Bridges Ministry because I don’t have a way to get 1 mile down the road much less 40. It is disappointing, frustrating and sooooo confusing. I had prayed about this for months before I got involved. I felt God leading me that way. Some might say that this is an attack of the enemy keeping me from my purpose. I don’t feel that way. I usually have a pretty good sense of what is an attack and what is God. Not that I am always right.

I will be housebound for who knows how long. My only way of getting a car is prayer. God has a way of stripping us of everything in order to bring us closer to Him. It is sometimes needed to bring us to a place that we are fully dependent on Him. Just touching the garment of Jesus can bring a miracle, if only we have faith.

Luke 22:42

42 “Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done.”

I still struggle with trying to control things. Maybe, keeping me housebound is a way for God to make me focus on HIS will for once. I can’t go anywhere. He has a captive audience and I am willing to say, “I am completely confused and I have no idea what you are doing, but THY WILL BE DONE.”

I have 2 heart tests next week, so prayers for a positive outcome are appreciated!

Regardless of all the challenges in my life, I am abundantly blessed!
