Women are resilient! Many women gracefully balance every area of their lives and yet they still manage to give more of their time, more of their love, and more of themselves!
But, we all reach a point when our resources, our talents, and our ability to fix things just isn't enough. That is exactly what a woman in the Bible with a seriousness health issue felt after spending all she had on health care, and yet her hemorrhaging continued. Another woman was well resourced and had the finest money could buy, but she couldn't have what she wanted most....a baby. Another woman was devastated by loss and her world came crashing down! And yet another woman was covered by shame and embarassment because of her indiscretions. It seems as though utter hopelessness covered each and every one of these women's lives....but they all did one thing that changed EVERYTHING. They all admitted their need for a savior! They all brought their brokenness to the one who could give them beauty for their ashes. They all turned their whole heart to the one who created it.....and with that, their circumstances changed! They all left the outcome in the hands of the one who still performs miracles! The one who breathes life into dead situations....the one who is HOPE!
They all encountered love! And love changes everything! "But Jesus looked at them and said, “With men it is impossible, but not with God; for with God all things are possible.” Mark 10:27
