Did You Find Me? – A Poem

I was lost
but now I’m found
I think I’ve heard a hymn
Along those lines

It sounds cliché
but it is true
I was completely lost
Until I found You

Or did You find me?

Did You come in search
of me in the dark
to light my way
when I could not see

I ponder sometimes
Those dark, lonely days
Knowing not where to turn
Feeling lost in a haze

Why did such suffering
I have to endure
Could You not keep me
Safe from the pain

Or did You teach me?

Did You teach me of things
Only the redeemed can know
Lessons of trust and compassion
For my God and the souls
Of the lost
Still needing to be found

  1. This is so wow Linda from the title to the content! I am so sure He found me Linda because during my lowest time I didn’t even have the strength to pray or look for Him. I just fenced in myself feeling lifeless. He took me in His arms and comforted me and nursed me back to life.

    Thank you so much for this and blessings to you :)

    • Rea, When I look back, I realize that He found me long before I even knew it. I’m sure it was the same with you. When we were at our lowest He was holding us in the palm of His hand already helping us heal. Peace, Linda

  2. This is just perfect. . .like a prayer, as we go before Him, wondering and asking and Him always answering and finding us there. (not sure that made sense . . .sorry) But your poem did make sense! Thank you! God bless you as you help others get found too!

    • Deb, It made sense to me. :) Your comment, that is. It is just so wonderful that He found us, that He cared enough to come in search of us when we were so lost. And that He then uses that lost time to help us have compassion for those He hasn’t found yet. Peace, Linda
