I would just like to say that I am listening to Redeemed on my iPod over and over and over and over again with a river of tears just gushing down my face. The words (and even the rich vocals) are so powerful for me. Over the past year, I've gotten a personal relationship with God and His son, Jesus Christ. But today, 10/23/12, as I listen to this son, I feel like I AM FINALLY RECOGNIZING, INTERNALIZING and CELEBRATING what that means to and for me....that I am Redeemed; and, how much I am Redeemed and that I can hold my head up high despite my sins, my failures, my regrets, etc. THANK YOU JESUS CHRIST for saving me and thank you for sending your message through Big Daddy Weave in the song Redeemed!

May God Bless You Always!

What are some verses that have helped you through this?

I love the song Redeemed ~ everytime I hear you singing that song I am overcome by emotion and the Holy Spirit. The songs that you sing have touched me for years. About 10 years ago I lost my husband when he was 39 and I threw myself into Christian music because that is where I felt the most comfort and the songs that Big Daddy Weave sang touched me so much and I believe helped me through because God has annointed your music to touch people at the heart. Thank you for sharing your gift!

I have struggled with self esteem and acceptance in a lot of areas in my life. Hearing your song and listening to your story has allowed me to see that I am not seen in the way that I see myself, I am redeemed. I am amazing because I am a child of god.

A NIECE SENT ME YOUR REDEEMED SONG JUST AFTER MY DAUGHTER RAN AWAY 2 MONTHS . ( MY HUSBAND WAS DIAGNOSED WITH A BRAIN TUMOR, AS WELL, IN APRIL. ) i HAD NEVER HEARD OF YOU BEFORE, BUT, SINCE THEN I HAVE FOUND MANY MORE FAVORITES FROM YOU THAT MINISTER TO US, AS WELL., LIKE, IF YOU DIED TONIGHT..TOO MANY MORE TO PUT HERE. I JUST THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR SHARING YOUR GIFT OF MUSIC AND SONG WRITING TO MY HURTING FAMILY.. IN CHRIST, PJL

This song speaks to the core of the Christian experience of what it means to be redeemed. That is why so many of us identify with it.

I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoy your song "Redeemed". I keep screwing up in my life and I feel like how in the world can God love me, when I keep messing up but your song speaks to me and lets me know that God loves even me. Thank you for your work......

Mike......I so live your redeemed lyrics as an anthem. It keeps me going. It inspired me to create an image to illustrate my shackles......shalom en theos.......jim

This song stirred my soul and made my spirit rejoice like no song has done in a long time! Thank you!

Mike, My wife and I have a small prison ministry in Indiana and we have used this song in worship services and at our tent revivals in several prisons. It truly touches the men and women in a very way. It speaks to their hearts and to their minds. Many men and women have come to Christ after listening to this song and realizing the God loves even those in prisons. Thank you and the others of your group for touching the sometimes untouchable souls in our prisons through your music. I have sent you a special request in a message on the BDW facebook page. Please take time to read it. God bless you all,

This video and story has touched my life so much. It is as if you looked into my soul and wrote it just for me. Thank you so much for this beautiful peace of art that the Lord placed in your heart to reach out into the darkness and pull back into the light!!! Praise you Jesus for using these talented musicians! Love you

Mike... I read your story on 106.9 website and I also watched the video above.
God made you who you are and your are precious in his eyes. I praise him for your talent, your heart and your ability to reach and encourage people with your music and your testimony.

Redeemed, speaks to my soul like no other song has done in my life, with the possible exception of Amazing Grace, and being 57 years old, I have heard a lot of music. Music has always been one of the most important things to me.
You seem to be someone who should never doubt his worth. You are truly blessed by God.
