The Story: Jairus was the head of a synagogue, and his daughter was ill. He begged Jesus to heal his daughter. As they traveled to Jairus’ house, word came that the daughter had died. Jesus continued to the house anyway, and raised the little girl to life.
Jairus hoped for a simple healing, but what he received was resurrection. This is true for us, as well. We ask for healing in so many areas of our lives – our physical selves, our emotional selves, our spiritual selves. The Divine is just as generous with us as They were with Jairus. We, too, receive resurrection. We are changed, we are reborn!
