Like This: Redeemed

Though words of affirmation have always been spoken over my life, I’ve still experienced regrets and shame.  So the line that jumped out of this song for me was: “I remember oh God, You’re not done with me yet”.  I love the pictures that Big Daddy Weave paint with their words, they are such great story tellers.  Enjoy :)

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 that’s already been won”

(Chorus)
I am redeemed
You set me free
So I’ll shake off theses heavy chains
And wipe away every stain
Now I’m not who I used to be
I am redeemed
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
Because I’ve got a new name
A new life I’m not the same
And a hope that will carry me home

– Redeemed, Big Daddy Weave
