Touching Jesus

Touching Jesus

The woman who had an infirmity

for twelve long years.

Went through so much pain,

so many tears.

When hearing of Jesus, she said;

to him I must go.”

Knowing that it was him who

could make her whole.

There was a large crowd—

having fought her way through.

Touching Jesus was what she

desired to do.

She knew that he loved

her so very much.

She reached out to his garment,

simply to touch.

To touch her savior was

her desperate plea,

Jesus asked, “who was it

that touched me?”

The woman confessed

what she had done,

She was made whole,

having touched God’s son.

Jesus’ touch is what you need

for your problems too.

Reach out to him—

for he’s reaching out to you!!!

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!
