'Tears This Side of Eden' by Perry LaHaie – A Journey Through Tears to Hope


Perry LaHaie releases 'Tears This Side of Eden'. This song has a message that, despite knowing that Jesus loves you and has planted kingdom dreams in you to pursue, you may still have experienced so much shame, regret, and depression that you know there will be a lot of tears in the journey. Not just any tears; Perry is talking about the kind that stains the journey - tears born from regret and sorrow, and still so mixed with joy, as the Spirit floods you with love.

Perry LaHaie - Tears This Side of EdenWhat makes this song so relevant is that Perry LaHaie has walked this path and poured his heart into 'Tears This Side of Eden.' This song is Perry's story, and possibly it's your story as well. You see, Perry knew the struggles of shame and the burden of sorrow, but he also knew something far greater - the hope that our Savior gives.

'Tear This Side of Eden' was born out of the valleys and peaks of life. It's a reminder that even though you may be weeping on this journey, you are never alone. Our Savior knows your name, hears your cries, and, by His throne, He's pleading for you. And the power that you feel in your weakness? It comes from His endless grace and gives you strength to continue your journey.

So, have a listen, and may Perry's journey of hope also spark hope in you as well. For in your soul, there is hope this side of Eden.
