Redeemed

Seems like all I can 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 that’s already been won”

I am redeemed, You set me free
So I’ll shake off theses heavy chains
Wipe away every stain now I’m not who I used to be
I am 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 don’t have to be the old man inside of me
Cause his day is long dead and gone
I’ve got a new name, a new life I’m not the same
And a hope that will carry me home

(Music & Lyrics: Mike Weaver / Benji Cowart)

Even though I was driving when I first heard this song, it brought me to my knees in a prayer of thankfulness for God's grace and His love. Thank you for listening to Him.

Wow, I heard this song for the first time this morning..tears just flooded my eyes as I was driving and listening. I made sure when I got to coffee shop to find this song! I have posted on my facebook and emailed to all my family/friends! This touches my heart so much that each time I listen to it..my eyes water because it is me. Thank you BDW for this amazing beautiful freeing reminder!

This is the song that I first heard that I knew I had to get a CD of Big Daddy Weave. I still haven't gotten this actual CD, but I have another one that's good too. I absolutely love this song!!! :)

This is an amazing song and all of the comments you made on K-Love about the meaning behind the song have brought so much redemption to my soul. I have not been right with my family since I was a teenager and I fear I never will be, because I always say and do the wrong thing and I ended up back at square one. But you know your song made me realize I am redeemed and what matters is how God sees me and I am going to stop trying to hard to please eveyone else, I as for me and my house we will serve and please the Lord...and all else will be up to God's will!!! Thank you for writing this song and thank you for being candid on K-Love.... Love in Christ. Deb Brindley
