What is God Redeeming in Your Life Today? {And A Gift for You!}


I marvel at God’s redeeming power. Salvation. Forgiveness. Mercy. Grace.

Lives once lost, now saved — and that reality of redemption reaches deep into our days. Not one experience, one gift, one talent, one sin, one stumble, one glint of shame, one creative idea, or one of anything else is beyond His redemptive reach. He uses it all. Nothing in our life goes to waste.

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28 NIV

The Fragrance of Love: Redemptive Power

by Cathy Baker

Ah, the fragrance of God’s redemptive power. Breathe in deeply for its potent scent is costly and its deliverance, swift. It redeems souls, gives trials eternal purpose, and hope in what seems to be a hopeless situation. I should know.

Almost thirty years ago, a miscarriage left me with a multitude of questions and seemingly nowhere to turn for the answers. But God came to my rescue in a way I never expected, as told in my story that’s included in Chicken Soup for the Soul’s newest release, “Hope and Miracles.”

When the painful story
unfolded all those years ago I had no way of knowing it would one
day be shared with thousands of readers. 

Only God could take such dark days and bring them to light many years later. I pray my story, “A Green and White Dixie Cup,” will encourage and inspire those with a similar loss. To God be the glory! 

How has God redeemed one of your darkest moments? 

In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace. Ephesians 1:7
