Reaching Out to God

In the Gospel of Mark, before healing the man with the withered hand, Jesus tells him to reach his hand outward. I find this to very symbolic for our spiritual lives with the Lord. When we are in distress, how often do we reach out to the Lord, seeking His help, healing, and protection? We often make God the last option rather than the first. If we are experiencing some kind of difficulty, let us reach out to God who will heal us.
