In this sermon, Elder Gary Dieckman reminds us that a life of faith requires work and focus, but that if we put in the work, Jesus will be right there, ready to heal us.
“And a large crowd followed him and pressed in on him. Now there was a woman who had been suffering from haemorrhages for twelve years. She had endured much under many physicians, and had spent all that she had; and she was no better, but rather grew worse. She had heard about Jesus, and came up behind him in the crowd and touched his cloak, for she said, ‘If I but touch his clothes, I will be made well.’ Immediately her haemorrhage stopped; and she felt in her body that she was healed of her disease.” –Mark 5:24-29
