Large crowds followed him, and he healed them there. (NIV)
He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace and be freed from your suffering.” (NIV)
Hearing this, Jesus said to Jairus, “Don’t be afraid; just believe, and she will be healed.” (NIV)
… but the crowds learned about it and followed him. He welcomed them and spoke to them about the kingdom of God, and healed those who needed healing. (NIV)
It was cold this early morning. I put on the heater in my car and turn down the radio. All I can hear was the engine and the heater. It was a stillness in “my world” this morning. Not because it was 4:15 in the morning and the world was still sleeping, but I was sad. I didn’t sleep well the night before, I was tossing and turning. I started my night praying when I found out that this beautiful little girl, that I and many have been praying for, had passed away the early morning before. I was upset that God didn’t heal Daisy Love. That God let that cancer take away little Daisy Love’s life. Then of course, I started talking to God and asking Him why? He didn’t answer me. He didn’t even give me some comforting scripture. I even listen to so MUCH worship songs and still NOTHING!!
Back to being sad in my car, as I drove off. I noticed people waiting for the bus in this cold. Then I thought, “does the bus even run on Sundays?” Then, I turned off the heater because I can’t have it to long because I get too hot. Then I started thinking about stopping at Starbucks and wondering what to get that is “healthy”. I also need gas. I finally get to work, seeing the homeless guy sleeping all covered up with trash and all his stuff everywhere. All this time, my normal routine that I have day after day, God has always, always protected me, provided for me, blessed me, and loved me. Just like Daisy Love. She is protected and loved by her Heavenly Father now and for eternity. Daisy will no longer have cancer. She will no longer be in pain. She will no longer cry. God has healed her. Thank You Jesus.
I know I don’t understand why things happen. I know that this life is not guaranteed. We always hear that things happen for a reason. A reason? Or a purpose? We all have a purpose in this life. Little Daisy Love wasn’t even ten years old and she touched so many lives. I never meet Daisy. I did go to her Dad’s church once. Join me in prayer for this family. They know that their Daisy Love is with Jesus now, but it is still very hard. I cannot even imagine how they are handling all of this. Only Jesus can give them His peace.
“He has redeemed my soul in peace from the battle that was against me, For there were many against me.” (Psalms 55:18 NKJV)
