The God Who Buys Me Back

You are the God who buys me back.

Everytime I run to the marketplace

And sell myself to a lie

You show up with a fistful of truth

And You buy me back.

Every time

Your word alone is enough

To remind me

And the slave driver

That with Your own flesh and blood

You have already paid for me

In full.

I belong to You, Great God.

You bought me back at a great price.

May I not run from You today.

– Excerpt from the Book, “Praying for Your Future Husband” by Robin Jones Gunn and Tricia Goyer
