My name is Free.
Not depressed/ Not reject/ Not fornicator/ Not hatred/ Not low self-esteem/ Not liar
My identity is not the same/ Once, I answered the name “sinner”/ If you call me that now, you will get no response/ Because that phase of my life is done
My name is Redeemed
Not confusion/ Not jealousy/ Not rebellious/ Not promiscuous/ Not drug addict/ Not murderer
My chains are broken!/ My life is plastered with this truth/ That I no longer have to answer to sin/ One man’s heroic deed transformed my life/ Given another chance to live
From sin to free
From a rebellious and tortured girl/ To a righteous and holy woman
From negative imaginations and profane thoughts/ To positive thinking and joyful living
From a heart filled with hurt and hate/ To a heart filled with loads of love to give away
From corrupt values filled with no remorse/ To standards of integrity and honor
From a wasted life/ To a victorious one
Jesus’s sacrifice is more than a celebration/ It is genuine liberation.
To be set free from chains of destruction/ To be loosen from a horrific and regretful past/ Worthy of death instead given a fresh start
Why dwell on the past and meditate on what I use to do/ I have no excuse to associate with my old life/ My old identity erased and replaced with the truth
I am joyful
I am peaceful
I am accepted
I am renewed
I am restored
I am chosen
I am forgiven
When Jesus set me free……….I am free indeed.
