I love rain. I love the sound, the smell, the puddles - yes I'm a puddle jumper =) But I love the symbolism as well. Rain is often used to symbolise troubles ("storms of life"), but it's also very much used as a symbol of being cleansed. And that's what this song talks about: even when the rain falls, even when the flood starts rising, even when the storm comes, I am washed by the water. God knows the storms I've been through... There've been times when I could feel the rain, times when I felt like I was drowning, times when I felt like just giving up... But even through it all, I am cleansed by the water, and with God's help I make it through.
Have a listen to this song, and as you do, think about where you have been in your life. How has God helped you through your storms? Leave me a comment, let's chat! And let me know what you think of the new layout! =)
