.. there is always hope..

"What a mass of hideous sickness must have thrust itself under the eye of Jesus! Yet we read not that He was disgusted, but patiently waited on every case. What a singular variety of evils must have been met at His feet! What sickening ulcers and putrefying sores! Yet He was ready for every new shape of the monster evil, and was victor over it in every form. Let the arrow fly from what quarter it might, He quenched its fiery power. The heat of fever, or the cold of dropsy; the lethargy of palsy, or the rage of madness; the filth of leprosy, or the darkness of ophthalmia - all knew the power of His word, and fled at His command. In every corner of the field He was triumphant over evil, and received the homage of delivered captives. He came, He saw, He conquered everywhere... Whatever my own case may be, the beloved Physician can heal me; and whatever may be the state of others whom i remember at this moment in prayer, I may have hope in Jesus that He will be able to heal them of their sins. My child, my friend, my dearest one, i can have hope for each, for all, when i remember the healing power of my Lord; and on my own account, however severe my struggle with sins and infirmities, i may yet be of good cheer. He who on earth walked the hospitals, still dispenses His grace and works wonders among the sons of men: let me go to Him at once in right earnest." - Spurgeon
