“He brought me up out of the pit of destruction, out of the miry clay, and He set my feet upon a rock making my footsteps firm. He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God” (Ps 40:2-3)
There is a joy that can only be found in redemption. When we have been mired in the pit, seen the most tragic and awful that life has to awful and felt the instability that this world’s ways bring – the steady and consistent peace of God’s pathway is so much sweeter.
When we’ve blown it and acknowledge our faults and God shows us a way to pick up and rebuild the pieces… redemption sings a new song.
“In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace,” (Eph 1:7)
