Have you heard the song Redeemed by Big Daddy Weave? It is a very popular Christian song and is a "KLOVE fan awards song of the year." Click here for the lyrics.
There is a book with the same title that is a 30 day devotional. The devotions are about God's grace, love, and redemption. Each devotional is about a page in length followed by a page of verses, another page of quotes about the topic, and a lined page to record your personal thoughts. This is a link for more information about this book.
This is a nice devotional to have to remind you in an easy to read format of the promises of God's Word about His grace in our lives. I found it encouraging to read these reminders.
This book was sent to me by the Worthy Publishing Group for my honest review. Thank you.

Mike Weaver in his new book, “Redeemed” published by Worthy Publishing gives us a 30 day devotional based on the song.
From the back cover: God can wipe away every stain… if you let him
The song Redeemed by the popular Christian group Big Daddy Weave has inspired millions. This collection of 30 devotions by songwriter Mike Weaver focuses on redemption, grace, and the healing power of Christ’s love.
“I am redeemed. You set me free. So I’ll shake off these heavy chains. Wipe away every stain. Now I’m not who I used to be. I am redeemed.
One of the definitions of “Redeem” is, “to make (something that is bad, unpleasant, etc.) better or more acceptable.” We all need to be reminded of what the words we use mean or else they become “meaningless”. We all have heard of the redemptive work of the cross but not all of us know what that means and some of us who do may have forgotten. Mike Weaver gives us 30 devotions to help us focus on the work that Jesus did for us and their meaning. Each day focuses on a different item we have been redeemed from. Each devotion begins with a verse, an explanation of the redemptive work, More Promises From God’s Word, More Great Ideas, A Quote, A Timely Tip, A Prayer For Today and a page for Your Own Thoughts. I think this is a wonderful book and that everyone should have a copy of it. It is a book that will be read and referred to over and over again. It also is a wonderful gift to give to family and friends so that they can use it the same way themselves.

I love how the lyrics of Big Daddy Weave's music just takes me to the feet of Jesus. So I was very excited to see Mike Weaver's new devotional based on one of their top hits. Mike has taken the lyrics and premise of the song Redeemed and written thirty short and to the point devotions that will remind us why we have been redeemed.
I spent several days with the book tucked into my purse. When I had a moment or two I'd pull it out and devour a chapter. I enjoyed not only the devotional thoughts but also the suggested scriptures and quotes from leading Christian voices. Another little thing that I liked was at the end of each chapter there is a page designated for your personal thoughts.
The beautiful artwork in the book centers around a heart theme. I'm thinking that this would make a lovely little Valentine's Day gift (along with some chocolate, of course!) for that special someone in your life. The bonus is that it doesn't even have to be a gift to a romantic interest . . . just choose someone you love! We could all use a reminder that we have been REDEEMED!
I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review.

Mike Weaver is the lead singer for the popular contemporary Christian band Big Daddy Weave.
Redeemed is a devotional book inspired by Big Daddy Weave’s single, chart topping, radio hit “Redeemed.” The 208-page devotional book is centered on, redemption, grace, and the healing power of Christ’s love.
The song, Redeemed, has inspired millions. This devotional book is a wonderful way to meditate and worship on, the loving and renewing grace of God. Each chapter has commentary, Bible verses from several translations, quotes from popular people, a prayer, and space to write your own thoughts. Though this book is set up to be read a section a day with room for notes in response to questions, it can be read through as a book. Redeemed is filled with encouragement for trying times and reminders of God's promises and greatness.
A very sweet devotional and I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a devotional as a reminder to keep Christ in their lives daily. It is great for gifts and to keep out on your coffee table. There are pages at the end of each section to allow for reflection and incorporate the message into your daily life.
