On the days I’m feeling most empty and broken, I remember the woman who reached out to touch the hem of Jesus’ garment.
The one whose touch He felt amidst the jostling crowd.
The one He stopped to not just look at, but to truly see.
The one He called “daughter.”

One of my favourites things is listening to stories.
We each have them. The story of how we came to be — of what shaped us and transformed us. The words that describe us. The gritty and grace-led moments that spread their way across the pages of our lives. It’s uniquely ours.

“Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name.Matthew 6:9-10
Your kingdom come, your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.”
But those words, “Thy will be done.” My sinful self finds them much harder to say.
It’s difficult to say, “Thy will be done” when faced with tremendous pain or suffering. How can I pray “Thy will be done” knowing that I may not be comfortable with the answer? Or when faced with the realities of this world — with sickness and job loss and injustice and brokenness? Can I trust His will even then?
