I know I haven't posted in a while and yes I'm another year older but I wanted to share this song with you. I heard the story behind the song and I sobbed. I tell Big Sister (who easily gets her feelings hurt) that when people laugh at her, she can just say she's holy, righteous and redeemed! She has something in her heart that not many of her friends do. For that, I am thankful.
This is also on my playlist when I run. I'm not one of those raise your hand in church when you worship people (there is nothing wrong with that, I'm just not that) but when this song comes on and I'm running, I worship. Hands in the air and all. I might look silly but I don't care. It pushes me through on more than one level!
FYI, the story behind this is Bart Millard (their lead singer) has a son with a studdering problem. He said when people make fun of him, he just tells them he has something in his heart that they don't and he's perfect. He says he's holy, righteous and redeemed. I love this. I can't wait to see them next month in concert and sing this with Big Sister!
