Lee Younger - 18 Better Than A Dream


I wrote this song about a woman in the Bible named Rahab. She had been used, played, lied to and taken advantage of. We don’t know how old she was when she became a prostitute, but her life was a miserable nightmare. She dreamed that somewhere, someone would actually love her for who she was. At some point, she heard that there was a Living God who loved nobodies like her. She threw caution to the wind and believed in Him. God rescued her from a great destruction and she became part of the family tree that brought Jesus into the world. It turns out that God’s plan for her was even better than her wildest dreams. 

This song is for anyone who feels used, rejected and miserable. Go ahead and dream about what God could do for you, knowing that He loves you and wants to do way more than even your dreams…
