And behold, a women who had suffered from a discharge of blood for twelve years came up behind him and touched the fridge of his garment, for she said to herself,”If I only touch his garment, I will be well.”. Matthew 9:20-21(ESV)
I suffer from periodic Major Depression. Yup, Christian, I know His truth, I know who I am in Christ, yet from time to time for anywhere from 4 weeks to several months a darkness hangs over me.
In the past, I felt no hope during this time. This past episode was different. Intellectually the enemy was telling all the lies that knock me down.
This time was different because deep in my heart my hand had hold of the hem of his garment. I knew if I kept hold, kept doing the next right thing I would be well. Thank you Jesus that you touched my heart so deeply that I knew you had me, know you love me and will never push me away from holding onto the hem of your garment.
Praise God today for his mercies are new every morning!
