That I May Touch the Lord...

“That I May Touch The Lord’s Garment…”


“That I may touch his garment,”

 was the woman’s goal.

She knew by touching Jesus,

she’d be made whole!


Having sickness and heartache,

 for so many years.

Often, having to hold back

 the pain and the tears.


The day she seen Jesus in the midst of the crowd.

She tried to call him...  But the people

were too loud.


She fought through the crowd

with all she had.

She was able to reach him! 

And was glad!


The moment she touched his garment,

she was healed!

She had sought after Jesus!

 With a passion and zeal!


Perhaps it’s the Lord’s garment,

you need to touch!

It’s no secret...  He loves you so much!


May you be blessed by the love he has to give!

May your life be touched

by his power to forgive!


I hope the following words, you’ll be able to say;

“I received from the Lord,

what I needed today!”

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
