The Bleeding Woman’s story is my story, and it’s Ann Swindell’s story. In Matthew 9, Mark 5, and Luke 8, we read about a woman who suffered from a hemorrhage for twelve years. Twelve long years … until she reached out and touched the hem of Jesus’ garment.
Swindell suffers from trichotillomania, a disorder that causes her to repeatedly pull out her eyelashes and eyebrows. Like the Bleeding Woman, Swindell has tried many remedies and spent many dollars, but she has not found a cure.
Prayer. Christians pray, and they wait. They pray more earnestly, and they wait in expectation. It’s the last minute. Is God going to intervene?
