Pain is something we all try to avoid. And when it does come into our lives, usually all we can think about is how to get through it, or stumble around it. But in today’s Bold Steps message, Pastor Mark Jobe is helping us to see that through our pain … there is incredible opportunity with God. We’re in the book of Mark, chapter 5, looking at verse 29 … where a suffering woman has just reached out to Jesus, touching his cloak, and finding immediate relief from the bleeding she had endured for so long. Pastor Mark explained in yesterday’s lesson how our secret pains may go unnoticed to others … but eventually, that pain will either drive us towards God … or further away.
