Redeemed

 

Do you remember when the world started to become a mess?

 

I can digress

 

Remember when Jesus Christ died for us?

 

My flesh, I detest

 

How many people in this world died for Him?

 

They died with Jesus Christ on their lips

 

Their last breaths were prayers to Him

 

Whereas I can’t even get a confession out to Him

 

Do you remember, God?

 

Those long years were so hard

 

Trust me, I’ve seen

 

God, why did you let them touch me?

 

Didn’t you hear me screaming?

 

My body still feels like its burning

 

All those nights

 

Contemplating suicide

 

Oh, how I wanted to die

 

But God you knew what you had in store for me

 

That pain in me

 

You wanted me to use my pain to help others

 

Those women who suffer

 

You knew I had a big heart

 

How do I even start?

 

I was so naïve

 

To think that God didn’t love me

 

But God knew what plan he had for me

 

The devil was slick enough to get inside of me

 

To get me to resent the creator who made me

 

Can I win?

 

The devil always trying to fight within

 

God, do you hear me?

 

I am trying not to be so weak

 

The kids around me always tryin’ to pick on me

 

Never ending

 

Could they see?

 

The potential that God saw in me?

 

I bet it was the devil tryin’ to get at me

 

Destroy me

 

Cuz he saw a light in me

 

Jesus, why do you love me?

 

Do you really want me?

 

Ain’t I obscene?

 

I need to be redeemed

 

Truly, God you know more than I

 

What plans you have

 

They’re hidden in my eyes

 

I know I keep messin up

 

Why can’t I live up?

 

To what Jesus did

 

I can’t even fathom

 

My Christ, He is so glorious

 

While the devil is notorious

 

He’ll try to ruin me

 

But my God will protect me

 

Can’t the demons see?

 

See, they try to grab me

 

But now I know they don’t have to have me

 

I can pray

 

Look, even my enemies run in shame

 

I may be a sinner

 

But, I don’t gotta let that define me

 

I’m a winner

 

Just try me

 

Fools, be trying to persecute me

 

They even try to hurt me

 

Now they be hatin’ even more

 

Now that Jesus is my Lord

 

They keep rollin’ up for more

 

But I know that Jesus got my back

 

They all think I’m whack

 

But now look who’s on crack

 

Can’t even fathom that

 

Man, get your life on track

 

Just cuz you don’t know how to act

 

Doesn’t mean you gotta pull me back

 

Don’t you know?

 

Jesus got my back

 

I’ve been redeemed because Jesus Christ lives in me!

 

Yeah, you heard me!

 

Jesus Christ lives in me

 

I am free

 

The world doesn’t have to define me!

 

The drugs, they don’t even appeal to me

 

Before Christ, I use to be a mess

 

Men always using me for sex

 

Pregnancy scares

 

Man, can’t believe I would dare!

 

It was a living nightmare

 

But even through all of that God still cared

 

Lost friends left and right

 

Didn’t care who I’d fight

 

I didn’t even care if I died

 

Just lyin’ to myself

 

Thinking this was hell

 

While as God sent help

 

Through my brother

 

He was a huge help

 

Never gave up on me

 

He inspired me to see God differently

 

I thank God every day

 

For changing my brother to the man who he is today

 

It’s hard to say

 

Express what I say

 

My pride is always getting in the way

 

Lord, your plan is working perfectly

 

The people I am meeting

 

Disciples

 

They are a blessing

 

I can’t wait to see what’s in store for me

 

The devil in me is slowing diminishing

 

The Jesus in me

 

Takin ahold of me

 

God, do you remember?

 

Jesus Christ redeemed me

 

now, I am FREE
