Repossess -LinkUp – Poetry

Can God Really Repossess Me When I’m Old?

It’s remarkable to me that God did find a way to repossess me when I got older. I hope that happens to all those who haven’t met Him yet.

This is a poem of reflection.


At birth, I knew God
And He knew me

As we separated
I tore away into the world

Throughout the next years
We met occasionally
Through children’s books
Sunday school songs and stories
Church activities

Through marriage vows
Births of three children
I felt Your power and magnificence

Then it happened
The world and evil intervened
I felt anger and pain
I blamed me and You, Lord

For 17 long years, I held You at arm’s length
I cried out to You only when I needed to


You came along
You led me
You taught me

Then you caught me
Repossessed me
You changed me
And are changing me still

Wholly Yours
I no longer fear
No longer pull away

I seek You every moment
For strength and guidance
For healing and Your power

Thank You for loving me
And wanting to repossess me
