Redeemed

I've heard this song over and over and you probably have too if you listen to Christian music.
But today it was like a heard it for the first time.
You know what I mean?

Just thinking about what He has redeemed me from...
how He has changed me completely and everything I am about...
It's a lot to take in.
whew.

I'm thankful for the work He has done in my life and thankful that He is not done with me yet.
Hope you are as blessed as I am by the lyrics in this powerful song.
Grab a cup of coffee, turn up your speakers and soak up God's goodness.


"Redeemed"
by Big Daddy Weave



Seems like all I could see was the struggle
Haunted by ghosts that lived in my past
Bound up in shackles of all my failures
Wondering how long is this gonna last
Then You look at this prisoner and say to me "son
Stop fighting a fight it's already been won"

I am redeemed, You set me free
So I'll shake off these heavy chains
Wipe away every stain, now I'm not who I used to be
I am redeemed, I'm redeemed

All my life I have been called unworthy
Named by the voice of my shame and regret
But when I hear You whisper, "Child lift up your head"
I remember, oh God, You're not done with me yet

I am redeemed, You set me free
So I'll shake off these heavy chains
Wipe away every stain, now I'm not who I used to be

Because I don't have to be the old man inside of me
'Cause his day is long dead and gone
Because I've got a new name, a new life, I'm not the same
And a hope that will carry me home


I am redeemed, You set me free
So I'll shake off these heavy chains
Wipe away every stain, 'cause I'm not who I used to be

I am redeemed, You set me free
So I'll shake off these heavy chains
Wipe every stain, yeah, I'm not who I used to be
Oh, God, I'm not who I used to be
Jesus, I'm not who I used to be
'Cause I am redeemed
Thank God, redeemed




"Oh give thanks to the Lord, for He is good!
For His mercy endures forever.
Let the redeemed of the Lord say so,
who He has redeemed from the hand of the enemy"
Psalm 107:1-2

  8. Beautiful song!
    Thought about you last night at my church's Freedom and Healing ministry message. We heard a wonderful testimony and at the end, this song was sung. It was amazing, moving, and powerful!
    Thanks for sharing with us.
