On this Good Friday, I think it's the first time I'm fully understanding the magnitude of the death of Jesus Christ and what it should mean to me as a Christian. That He would die for me...for my brokenness.

Today, I'm blown away and without words.

Today, worship seems the only response.

I am redeemed
You set me free
So I'll shake off these heavy chains
And wipe away every stain
Now I'm not who I used to be
I am redeemed
I am redeemed
Redeemed, by Big Daddy Weave

Today, I'm in awe of how I've lived a life unworthy of what happened at the cross, but grateful at the same time. I almost allowed the weight of the brokenness I felt this past week keep me in those chains, but once again He set me free.

So I lift up my head and thank God for not being done with me.

"I am redeemed."

Linking with Lisa-Jo Baker for Five Minute Friday


  1. Beautifully put. I can't believe that eloquence came out of five minutes of writing. :)

  2. Beth, you are an inspiration to so many as you search for ways to make God's love known to a world that needs Him so badly. Keep writing! :)

  3. Hi Beth! I am so thankful that He is never done with us. For, I would have been deemed unworthy so long ago. Easter blessings and a deep joy, be yours. ~Cynthia

  4. I totally relate that brokenness can be so beautiful, but can also be so weighty. I'm thankful with you for the cross that sets us free! Thank you for visiting my post. Happy to meet you!
