Redeemed = to buy back; to recover; to exchange; to convert; to make amends; to obtain the release or restoration of, as from captivity, by paying a ransom.
Something extraordinary happened to me one day. The day when I accepted Jesus as my personal Savior, is a day that I will never forget. That was many years ago. I've changed. I've grown tremendously. Living the life I'm living now is one that I would dream about, but blocked it out because I wanted to be free and not bound by man.
Blindness invaded my sight to true freedom in the high calling of a wife and a mother.
I was in bondage in my mind and my heart. Struggling to find my identity, only to continue going deeper into the pit that the enemy dug for me. I was buried neck deep in the miry clay. I couldn't claw my way out of the pit. I needed help to get out.
What a day when my Savior came and released me from captivity. He paid the ransom. No longer did I have to live in the pit when my Father is the King. I'm His daughter. Living the life I dreamt about for so long.
Some may say that there's more to life than being just a wife and a mother. True. But I must say from my own experience, besides my relationship with God, there's nothing comparable for me than being a wife and a mother.
I've been simply redeemed and my way of thinking has changed!
