Luke 8:41 "Then a man named Jairus, a ruler of the synagogue, came and fell at Jesus' feet, pleading with him to come to his house." Luke 8:40-50
When Jairus came to Jesus to get his daughter healed, he was interrupted because a woman --who had been sick for about the same amount of years as his own daughter was alive-- approached and got healed. Of course Jairus could have had her severely punished for touching Jesus in her "condition" but he didn't. The entire incident probably helped his faith and helped him to believe strongly enough to get his daughter healed. Isn't God good the way he sets things up to help build our faith?
This will be a blog for Christians, for people who are part of a minority, for writers. I'm a poet, essayist, devotionalist, reviewer and writer of speculative fiction.Let God be true...and every man a liar.
