Reach Out

What would it look like to just reach out and touch Jesus?
What would it look like?
Twelve long years,
Forced into an isolation
With no end in sight
Many different treatments
Nothing worked
Just continued deterioration
With nothing but frustration
Not to mention major fatigue
No hope until she touches the hem of Jesus’ garment

What would it look like to reach out to Jesus?
Every imaginable attempt tried
Many different avenues
With hope of improvement
Many doctors and treatments
Yet nothing worked. Nothing!
Nothing but more frustration and fatigue
The only hope is to reach out and touch Jesus

What would it look like to reach out to Jesus?
What would it look like?
Once active in the community
Now abandoned and isolated
Forced by a circumstance
Into a solitary confinement
Though under many doctors’ care
Continued deterioration
Not to mention more frustration
No hope until she touches the hem of Jesus’ garment

What would it look like to reach out to Jesus?
So many doctors and treatments
With hope of improvement
Yet more deterioration
And exhaustion mixed with frustration
The only hope is to reach out to Jesus

What would it look like to reach out to Jesus?
What would it look like?
Shattered and bewildered
With nothing but this big mountain of frustration
And continued isolation
Due to this major limitation
Don’t know what else to do
Nothing else has worked
I must reach out to Jesus

Tired of frustration
And isolation
Out of faith and desperation,
She reached out to touch the hem of Jesus’ garment
Freed from the illness that plagued her so long
Healed by a faith so profound
Once she reached out to Jesus

What would it look like if I just reached out to Jesus?
What would it look like?
Would I no longer feel trapped in this isolation?
Brought on by this major limitation
Would this major frustration cease?
I need to reach out and touch Jesus

Busy

I went to orientation today at a part-time job.  I need to have this job until I get a full time permanent job or God finds another way for me to leave without getting fired.  I am tired.  I need to go bed so I can finish reading material for another job.  It is complicated.  To be honest, I desire to move back to New York City.
