Redeemed

Sometimes when I think of the word redeemed, I often associate it with a new Christian, a baby believer, a just made a decision type of person.  I don't think of it applying to me. 

Here is what good old Webster says about redeemed...
1. to buy back, repurchase
2. to get or win back
3. to free from captivity by payment of ransom
4. to release from blame or debt

Yep, I have been redeemed, I just don't say it enough or truly accept at times.  I think of it as a one and done, it's not, it's a daily redeeming I receive from the Lord.  It's daily that He pays for my sins, it's daily that he purchases me back from this world, it's daily I win, He wins, the kingdom wins.  Every.single.day...wow.

"But as for me, God will redeem my life. He will snatch me from the power of the grave." Ps. 49:15

"He redeems me from death and crowns me with love and tender mercies." Ps. 103:4

Amen! I was JUST looking up the definition for redemption in my devotions this morning too - how crazy is that?

My current favorite song because I have come to a similar conclusion recently. Thank God, redeemed!

I love that song! When I think of what God did for me and my family, my marriage, I often think of "redeemed". It amazes me every day how He did that. When the song says, I'm not who I used to be. That is so true for Morgan and I! Love ya, Kate!!
