H.B. B! & I Am! Are You?

Before I discuss here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I want to wish my brother B... Happy Birthday!  Enjoy your special day!  Happy Birthday!

Here on LwL, I'll remind you that today is our day of worship!

Of course, we can also worship through music!

Here is a link for music on YouTube by Big Daddy Weave that is entitled,  Redeemed: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_p31gY0t4pA .  If you click on that link, you can listen to and/or sing along!  The lyrics are below.

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
And 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 theses heavy chains
And 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 theses heavy chains
And wipe away every stain now I'm not who I used to be
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
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

When I listened to this music, I had never before heard it... but truly adored it!

Also, when I watched this on YouTube , I noticed that on the music video link issue advertised was a Bible verse, so I'll share it with you!

It was Ephesians 1:7, "In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;".

Amen!  In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;.

It touched my heart.

Why?

As you can see, it was sung (I copied/pasted):  "I'm not who I used to be".

I felt the same.

After all, I repented of my sin, trusted in/believed upon my Lord, Jesus Christ... and gained salvation... and everlasting life.

So, I am also... not who I used to be.  I am a believer!

I am Redeemed!  

And I belong to You, Lord!

Hallelujah!

Thank You, Lord!


Until next time...
