I just woke up crying to a horrible dream where I relapsed into the use of alcohol, and my wife told me I should leave. Horrible dream? .. that's an understatement. It was still very dream like, but the thread of my past (the alcohol, not my wife leaving me) shook me. It was not a horrible dream, it was a NIGHTMARE.
But then even as I became more awake and realized it was just a bad dream the song by Big Daddy Weave 'I am redeemed' came to my mind.
Alcohol is becoming more something that is more and more in my rear view mirror, and my wife loves me (go figure). So I smiled big, became completely awake kissed Mary on the cheek and got up wanting to listen this song by Big Daddy Weave and blog the great truth. I AM REDEEMED.
Ok here Jeff goes again.. he is a cartoonist not a preacher, and not even much of a good-er-er writer. This is all true, but again more importantly .. I AM REDEEMED. This is more of an uplifting message for me and many of you than any smile for a day cartoon. So with this intro, let me share the lyrics for I AM REDEEMED.
My prayer is that each of you realize YOU ARE or YOU CAN BE redeemed. All the prodigal son or daughter must do is come to Jesus and ask for forgiveness and you are REDEEMED.Forgiven, the prodigal son or daughter. Praise God.
