New wine in new wineskins

Jesus turned, and seeing her He said, “Take heart, daughter; your faith has made you well.” Matthew 9:22

Twelve years is a long time to bleed.  I ought to know.  

And once again, the ruler, having come to the end of his resources and hope, knelt before Jesus.  “Come and lay your hand on her, and she will live.”  And Jesus went in and took the girl by the hand, and the girl arose.  

And she said to herself, “If I only touch his garment, I will be made well. And instantly the woman was made well.

And as Jesus passed on from there, two blind men followed him, crying aloud, “Have mercy on us, Son of David.” When he entered the house, the blind men came to him, and Jesus said to them, “Do you believe that I am able to do this?” They said to him, “Yes, Lord.” Then he touched their eyes, saying, “According to your faith be it done to you.”

I believe; help my unbelief.
