3. The Story of the Woman with the Issue of BloodRelated Media
Sandra begins her lecture with an overview of the elements of lament psalms--teaching how hurting psalmists talked with God, and spotlighting Psalms 6 and 12. She moves into the story of a woman who had endured a menstrual flow for twelve years (Mark 5:25-34). As a last resort, she approached Jesus for healing. Jesus pressed her to testify of her healing, and then spoke a blessing of wholeness to her. If God has rescued us from a disastrous circumstance or from sin, we also should testify for the benefit of others. Our lives are the only “Bible” that some of our friends and family will ever read.
