So a little back story. A few years ago ( okay, so maybe it was 10ish) I had an experience that changed my life. Scared me to death, and yet still didn’t lead me to come back to Christ. Every time I drive by a certain place, I remember that girl that I used to be. I remember my life and the way I was choosing to live it. I remember it with shame and regret.
So yesterday, My sweet Grandma and I went to Morgantown, WV for some appointments for her. We had a wonderful time together as always. On the way home though, as we passed by that place, I was filled with the same feelings. I remember that experience in vivid detail, and I remember that God sent me an angle to help me that night.
I guess I got kind of quiet after that and she started asking about plans for this upcoming Easter weekend. I told her that I have to be up super early to sing as a guest at a Sunrise Service for a church that we sometimes visit. She asked me what I planned to sing and I told her “Here, Ill play it for you.” So I played Big Daddy Weave’s “Redeemed”.
As I listened to the words, I felt like God was speaking to me…
Stop fighting a fight that’s already been won”
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”
