We've been thinking about the old story of a very sick woman who tried everything she knew to do medically and still came up short.  She still suffered.  She still had to face her medical challenge every single morning.  
Then she decided to get BRAVE.
Apparently, she had heard about Jesus and the miracles he had done and she told herself, "If I can just touch his clothes, I will be healed." So, she bravely came up behind him in the crowd and touched his clothes. And she was healed!  Right then. 
What kind of bravery does it take to interrupt Jesus' schedule?  (He was on his way to an important man's house.)  And what kind of bravery does it take to risk ridicule? (By law, she wasn't even supposed to be in public while sick.)
It takes a bravery that believes in the compassion of Jesus.  A bravery that trusts in his grace.

We created this graphic to remind us of this grace-full story.  The whole story is found in the book of Mark in the Bible and we hope you'll take a moment to read it and be inspired to live bravely in His grace.

Living brave,
