I might be hanging by a thread but at least it’s by the hem of His garment

I might be hanging by a thread but at least it’s by the hem of His garment (Hanging by a Thread, Held by His Hem: Finding Strength in Faith) In life, there are moments when we feel as though we’re hanging by a thread, our strength waning, and our resolve tested. Yet, amidst the chaos and uncertainty, there is a source of unwavering strength, a lifeline that sustains us even in our weakest moments. It is the touch of the Jesus’ garment, the hem that offers hope, healing, and restoration.

I might be hanging by a thread but at least it’s by the hem of His garment (Hanging by a Thread, Held by His Hem: Finding Strength in Faith) In life, there are moments when we feel as though we're hanging by a thread, our strength waning, and our resolve tested. Yet, amidst the chaos and uncertainty, there is a source of unwavering strength, a lifeline that sustains us even in our weakest moments. It is the touch of the Jesus’ garment, the hem that offers hope, healing, and restoration.

In the gospel of Matthew, we encounter the story of a woman who had been suffering from a hemorrhage for twelve years. Despite seeking medical help, her condition only worsened, and she found herself depleted of both physical and emotional strength. Yet, in her desperation, she dared to reach out and touch the hem of Jesus’ garment. In that moment of faith, she was healed.

And a woman who had been suffering from a hemorrhage for twelve years, came up behind Him and touched the fringe of His cloak; for she was saying to herself, “If I only touch His garment, I will get well.” But Jesus turning and seeing her said, “Daughter, take courage; your faith has made you well.” At once the woman was made well.

Matthew 9:20-22 NASB

This woman’s story resonates deeply with many of us who have experienced moments of despair and hopelessness. Like her, we may find ourselves clinging to the hem of Jesus’ garment, our faith hanging by a thread. But even in our weakest moments, we discover that His grace is more than sufficient to sustain us.


κράσπεδον — Greek: kraspedon /kras’-ped-oh/ Meaning: a margin, that is, (specifically) a fringe tassel, border, or hem.


When we feel overwhelmed by life’s challenges, it’s easy to succumb to fear and doubt. We may question whether God hears our prayers or if He truly cares about our struggles. Yet, it is precisely in these moments that we must hold fast to our faith, trusting that God is at work even when we cannot see or understand His plan.

The hem of Jesus’ garment symbolizes His power, His love, and His compassion. It reminds us that even in our brokenness, we are not alone. God is with us, walking beside us, and offering His hand to lift us up when we stumble. Plus that thread of His garment is strong and will not break. He will not let go!

So, when we find ourselves hanging by a thread, let us remember to reach out in faith and touch the hem of His garment. For in that simple act of trust, we find strength, we find hope, and we find healing. May we never lose sight of the profound truth that we are held firmly in the grasp of a loving Savior who will never let us go.
