"Your time has come.  Things in your life are about to change.  What you are weeping over today you will rejoice over tomorrow."  God's grace turns the failures of our past into fertilizer.  Like a lily springing up in a mud marsh, God offers us: "Beauty for ashes, and the garment of praise in exchange for the spirit of heaviness." [see Isaiah 61:3].  Notice, when Christ mentioned this woman's past He was not a Pharisee pointing an accusing finger.  No, He was the Good Shepherd walking for miles to find one lost sheep; the great Physician pouring healing love into her deepest wounds; and "the door" that leads out of misery and into the life she always longed for.
