Redemption Rain

I truly enjoy it when it rains. When it pours, I do the exact opposite of most and run into the storm. I don't like umbrellas or rain hats because I especially love the feeling of rain on my hair. When I was a little girl at the cottage, I washed my hair in the rain barrel and I still prefer it to tap water.

So it seemed fitting when my friend Janelle was listening to "Redemption Rain" by Melissa Helser one day and got the distinct impression the song held something for me. I have made no secret of my fandom of all things Helser, but I'd never actually mentioned this to her.

The song has become an anthem of sorts for me. Not just because I believe He will come like the rain, or because rain washes me clean, refreshes me, and is necessary for lushness and growth. But also because rain just feels so good on my skin, on my face and of course on my hair. And redemption raining in my life is so amazing in my heart, mind and soul. 

You gave abundant showers, O God; you refreshed your weary inheritance (Psalm 68:9)
Redemption Rain by Starla Michelle Halfmann
Won't you come up here, come up high
Won't you sing His praise, let it rise
Up from your, ashes and all your pain
Won't you come and dance, in redemption's rain
Come up here
Redemption rain is falling down, down, down
Redemption's love is pouring out, out, out
Redemption's song is singing la, la, la
He's singing la, la, la
Won't you come up here, come up now
Won't you leave your worries below the clouds
And let His beauty fill your lungs
The heavenly chorus it has begun
Come up here

Oh love be in my bones
Love shake down my walls

  1. Holy! I am loving this song, hearing it for the first time!

    1. I guess that was the secondary or tertiary reason I decide to blog about music for a month: to turn people on to 30 plus songs that have moved my heart :)
