Redeemed

Redeemed

I’m a little obsessed with the song “Redeemed” by Big Daddy Weave. So much so, it has become an anthem of sorts, something I listen to before I write and when I’m trying to get out my “I’m so worthless” moments and into the frame of mind that God would have me in.

It starts

“all my life I have been called unworthy…”

Oh, how I can relate to that. But guess what, that’s how things started for me, not how I ended up. While I still struggle with some things, most of the time I am able to catch myself and nip this “worthless” thinking. Part of how I do that is prayer and reconnecting with God.

IT IS NO LONGER IWHO LIVE

I got Big Daddy Weave’s album this year for Christmas, and I’ve been listening to it a lot. There is something about music that helps me connect with God and put it all in perspective. When I listen to “Redeemed,” I like to think of this verse:

“I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.”

~ Galations 2:20

… no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. Yes! And I am redeemed.
