Just One Drop

Today at sacrament meeting as they passed around the water trays, I noticed that the cups were barely filled with water. As I took the cup to my lips, I thought about the story of the woman with a blood issue who knew that if she touched the garment of the savior she would be healed (Matthew 89)

20 ¶And, behold, a woman, which was diseased with an issue of blood twelve years, came behind him, and touched the hem of his garment:

21 For she said within herself, If I may but touch his garment, I shall be whole.

22 But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour.

Like her, we can have confidence of the healing power of the savior. Each week, as we partake of the sacrament we can come unto the savior and metaphorically touch the helm of his garment. And just as the woman knew that just one touch was all that was needed, we can be confident that only one drop is enough.
