A Touch of His Hem

*Pastor’s Note: Here’s another poem from one of my favorite Christian poets. I love the flow of rhyme from the poetry of Sister Deborah Ann Belka and I love the inspiration and encouragement behind them. She has a true spiritual gift and she uses it to bless us all. This is recently revised from her website, CHRISTian Poetry – By Deborah Ann. Please visit her site and be blessed, and remember to pray for her ministry (service) as part of the Body of Christ.

a touch of his hem - dab

When I saw Him from a distance,
I ran and followed after Him
for, I believed all I needed . . .
was just a touch of His hem.

For years I’ve been scorned,
shunned by those around me
so I hid myself in the crowd
hoping my shame He wouldn’t see.

As He passed by I reached down,
and took from Him my cure . . .
for, I believed this man named Jesus
would heal me if my faith was pure.

He called me His daughter,
when my trust in Him I revealed
and from that very moment
from my disease I was healed.

He bid to me to go in good comfort,
saying my faith had made me whole
for, I believe as I touched His hem . . .
He imparted favor right into my soul.

There is a lesson to my story,
don’t be ashamed of your illness or sin
for Jesus still heals today . . .
if you let Him touch you from within!


Matthew 9:20-22

“And, behold, a woman,
which was diseased with an issue
of blood twelve years,
came behind him, and touched
the hem of his garment:
For she said within herself,
If I may but touch his garment,
I shall be whole.

But Jesus turned him about,
and when he saw her, he said,
Daughter, be of good comfort;
thy faith hath made thee whole.
And the woman was made whole
from that hour.“
