40 Days of Lent | Day 13: Power Over Sin & Death

Daily Scripture Reading: Mark 5:21-43

“…Daughter, your faith has made you well; go in peace and be healed of your disease.” Mark 5:34 (ESV)

Neighbors told neighbors and friends told friends how Jesus healed the sick and made the blind see. People desperate for a miracle followed Jesus everywhere. Jairus and a woman who had suffered for 12 years heard about this healing. Two desperate people begged for miracles, and Jesus met their needs.

We pray for miracles in our own lives. If we wrote our own stories, we might skip the chapters on suffering and loss. Yet, so often that’s the very place where Jesus shows His power.


Will you trust God to write your story? He loves you more than you can imagine. Jesus suffered death on a cross to bring you eternal healing! In the Kingdom of God, the suffering are comforted, hearts are mended, and new life takes the place of death. Write down some of the ways God has changed your story for the better.
