I was an ordinary girl , I wasn’t a troublemaker if you will , I was quite and shy girl , but at the end of the day I felt an emptiness within myself , I was just tired of following the beat of the world.

His Love is so much stronger than whatever troubles me. I can freely say that I am redeemed, He had set me free, so I shake off my heavy chains, wipe away every stain now I 'm not who I used to be, I am redeemed.

I’m not ashamed
