Family Reflection Video: The Touch

Family Reflection Video: The Touch

strength and hope  |  healing  |  touch

An 800-year-old experiment reveals to us that physical touch is critical to survival.

For healing to take place, we have to either touch Jesus or allow Him to touch us. Whatever we encounter, whatever happens to us, or whatever obstacles come our way, we place our trust in God. He is able to rescue us from any form of brokenness or chaos that we or someone in our family is experiencing.

God loves us just as we are and will help us when we are hurting. What kind of distress are you or your family experiencing that needs God’s healing? Do you allow God to work through you to aid Him in the healing of others?

My friends, I pray that you and your family will experience God’s tender touch of healing today.
