2015.02.03: the stuff of miracles

He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has saved you. Go in peace and be cured of your affliction.” Mk 5:34

with one touch
He cured the bleeding
with one touch
He awoke the dead
but that doesn’t tell
the rest of the story

it isn’t easy
to build up the courage
to ask for help

it isn’t easy
to admit our lack of control
and surrender ourselves
and our loved ones
to someone greater

it isn’t easy
to have faith
when so many have failed us
time and time again

it isn’t easy
to say yes
when we don’t know
what all that entails

but it is our yeses
no matter how reluctant
that God uses
to perform miracles
