Women of Faith: Woman with the issue of Blood

This is a wonderful story of the healing power of the Savior, of his kindness and mercy, and of the remarkable faith of a woman.  

From the new testament:  "And a woman having an issue of blood twelve years, which had spent all her living upon physicians, neither could be healed of any,
Came behind him, and touched the border of his garment: and immediately her issue of blood stanched.
And Jesus said, Who touched me? When all denied, Peter and they that were with him said, Master, the multitude throng thee and press thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me?
And Jesus said, Somebody hath touched me: for I perceive that virtue is gone out of me.
And when the woman saw that she was not hid, she came trembling, and falling down before him, she declared unto him before all the people for what cause she had touched him, and how she was healed immediately.
And he said unto her, Daughter, be of good comfort: thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace."

How often do we reach out to the Savior?  How often do we have faith in him enough to heal us of not just physical maladies, but our emotional, mental, and other trials we may go through.  He is ever there for us, and through faith, and through the priesthood, miracles may be wrought.  

Have faith in him, pour your heart to him in prayer, and know that he will help you in the trials of your life.  At the time you feel the most alone, and that you can't make it any more, then is the time you will be comforted, strengthened, encouraged, and will be able to feel of his love.  He atoned for you, so he could help you at the time you most need it.  

Rely on him.  Follow him.  Live with Him.
