Welcome to my eclectic journey of my life and delights. This year my theme is surrendering my writing pen to the true author, Jesus Christ, while looking forward to the future, reflecting on the past and dancing through my journey.

I AM REDEEMED - Sunday Singings

Last year I started posting songs that inspire me under the  title of "Sunday Singings".  They are all dedicated to my grandmother who is singing in heaven before the throne.  We would attend Sunday Singings in East Texas with my song-leading grandmother.  This week this song just penetrated to the inner part of my spirit.  Words first and then video if you have time...the music is beautiful.


I declare - I AM REDEEMED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

"Redeemed"

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 it's already been won"


I am redeemed, You set me free
So I'll shake off these heavy chains
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 these heavy chains
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 these heavy chains
Wipe away every stain, 'cause I'm not who I used to be

I am redeemed, You set me free
So I'll shake off these heavy chains
Wipe every stain, yeah, 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

Having a little trouble getting my groove back since last week. I don't know if it is hormonal fatigue or what, but I am.

I just sat here and listened to that one and let it wash all over me.

Thanks, Janette.
I needed that.

How fortunate to have that legacy with your grandmother, Janette. Music is such a powerful way to invoke and make memories. I can't imagine a world without music. And music to praise God with, it just doesn't get much better.
