Words From Heather

One TouchJune 28th, 2007
Many of you read my moms post “The Nana Takes A Turn” where she tells the following story:
“On the way to the airport, it was a quiet moment with scenery that was calming and music that was uplifting. We were listening to a Nicole C Mullins CD and the song “One Touch” came on. Heather, who could not speak a full sentence so far - sang this song. I cried as I listened to my daughters voice singing praises to God.”
I remember that moment. I remember visualizing that I was touching the hem of his garment. I remember wishing that this was all just a bad dream and I would soon wake up. I remember crying in the back of the rental car, singing this song. I am crying now, just listening to it… The pain is oh so very fresh on my heart.
If I could just touch the hem of His garment
"I know I’d be made whole
If I could just press my way thru this madness
His love would heal my soul
If only one touch "
Its hard to believe that all this happened over a month ago, Its hard to believe that this is my life. But its even harder for to believe that my God didn't
know that I would be going through this, at this very moment. He was here before me, waiting for me.
Like the woman in this song, I too want to push my way through this madness… I want to touch the hem of his garment…. I want to hear Him say “Someone has unleashed my power”. I want to be made whole.
I want that so very badly…
But then I remind myself to not forget the small miracles that happened along the way. How could I forget them? I am alive, I have full function of my right side, I have my speech, I have been blessed with a loving and dedicated family, and more importantly I have the promises of my loving Savior… whether I am healed this side of heaven, I will be whole on the other side. I will mount with wings like an eagle. I will soar into the ever loving arms of an ever lasting God.
He never left me… He has never left me… and that is the one thing I cling to.
He will move heaven and earth to come rescue me when I call...
