I was surprised because her face had always told me a different story: a story filled with joy.
"How could someone who's been through so much be so happy?" I thought.
I soon found out there had been a turning point in my friend's life. She had reached out to God and He had touched her. Her.
The bright smile on her face told me she was changed forever because of it.
When no one else had thought her worthy, He had. When nothing else had healed her pain, He had. When no one else had shown her love, He had. He had graciously come into her broken life and mended it into something beautiful.
Maybe, my sweet friend, you know what it feels like to come to the end of your rope and be left hanging without any hope. Nothing you've tried has eased your stress, and you worry people are beginning to give up on you.
Here's something you might try: Reach out like my friend.
You just might meet the splendid possibility of His miraculous touch.
