Just the Hem of His Garment

I wrote this poem with the story in mind of the woman in Matthew 9:20 who touched the hem of Jesus' garment because she was in need of some physical healing. I wrote this poem sort of through her perspective. Although, she was in need of some healing from a blood disease this poem could also be looked at for those who are in need of healing from an emotional, spiritual or mental standpoint etc. Regardless of what the healing need is....we should approach only the one true Healer....Jesus. 

Just the Hem of His Garment

I could almost see him so clearly from a distance.
He was walking humbly upright.
I tried to inch my way near him, but the crowd that was following him was too thick.
I began to lose sight of him for just a moment, and then I caught a glimpse of those piercing eyes.
They indeed pierced right through my empty soul.

I must get near him I thought.
For I know that only he could heal me.
I decided to push my way through the crowd that began to grow wild.
I fell down in the midst of them all, but I still somehow kept pushing forward.

On my hands and knees I crawled towards him; weak and trembling.
If I could only just touch the hem of his garment I just knew I would be made whole.

I finally got near him, or so I thought, and I reached out my fragile hands.
I didn’t reach far enough, for he was still a little ways off.
Desperately on my knees I gave one more push through the crowd.
I was trying with all my might to get close to him.

I reached out this time with everything inside of me, and touched the hem of his garment.
For that is all that it took to make me whole.

He turned and asked “who is it that touched me?”
My heart began to melt.

“It is I, Lord”... said with much trembling.
He then reached down, and grabbed my hand, but really He grabbed my heart.
 “Woman, your faith has healed you.” master said.
I was full joy.

For all it took was just to touch the hem of His garment to make me whole.

Greetings Earthlings.....

Well Hi there!

Totally new at this. Never blogged before so I am venturing out into this little blogging world. At first when I heard that people blogged, I didn't quite get it. But, now totally digging what I have read from others. I love to write so why not do it here. I wanted to write about my life, our newest addition to our family, random thoughts, poetry, little spiritual uplifts and whatever else I feel led to write or share. So sit back, relax, and grab a cup of joe. Just stay awhile and sink into this little blog of mine. While you are here I hope you are encouraged, uplifted and inspired...but most of all...I hope you enjoy it!
