Just One Touch

Author Cynthia Goyang Imagines Story of a Woman Who Endured Suffering and Was Healed by Faith

Cynthia relates the story of the woman who pushed through the crowd in order to touch Jesus’s garment. Now a certain woman had a flow of blood for twelve years and had suffered many things from many physicians.  She had spent all that she had and was no better, but rather grew worse.  When she heard about Jesus, she came behind Him in the crowd and touched His garment.  For she said, “If only I may touch His clothes, I shall be made well.” – Mark 5:25-28

She takes this short Bible story and creates a story of life and death, hope and salvation, and the power of faith.  Using her imagination, Cynthia tells the story of this woman’s life prior to her encounter with

Jesus and how it affected her life afterward.  “I hope that readers will be encouraged to replace their fear for faith and reach out to touch Jesus Christ the Lord,” says Goyang. “My beginnings, like Sapira’s, were quite humble. But also like Sapira, my life changed dramatically when I surrendered it to Jesus.”

When a handsome, rich, young man asks to marry the poor potter’s daughter, Sapira believes that she is the luckiest girl in the world.

However, her life soon begins to unravel and she loses not only her family and wealth, but her health as well.  After suffering for years from a steady loss of blood, Sapira has all but given up hope until the day she hears about a man named Jesus.

Cynthia’s writing has appeared in Guideposts and Angels On Earth Magazines. She recently finished her contemporary novel, Three Nights in Mannford. Watch for it to be released soon!
