Blessings

So I heard this song for the first time this week. And I absolutely LOVE it. What if our blessings come through raindrops? What if yourr healing comes through tears?
Every word of this song speaks the words my heart has been trying to say for a long time. I know that our blessings came through a lot of "rain" and "storms", and our healing came with MANY tears. I don't know, this song just really has spoken to my heart, and  I wanted to share it with you all :)



Blessings ~Laura Story

We pray for blessings

We pray for peace

Comfort for family, protection while we sleep

We pray for healing, for prosperity

We pray for Your mighty hand to ease our suffering

All the while, You hear each spoken need

Yet love is way too much to give us lesser things



‘Cause what if your blessings come through raindrops

What if Your healing comes through tears

What if a thousand sleepless nights are what it takes to know You’re near

What if trials of this life are Your mercies in disguise



We pray for wisdom

Your voice to hear

We cry in anger when we cannot feel You near

We doubt your goodness, we doubt your love

As if every promise from Your Word is not enough

All the while, You hear each desperate plea

And long that we’d have faith to believe



When friends betray us

When darkness seems to win

We know that pain reminds this heart

That this is not our home



What if my greatest disappointments

Or the aching of this life

Is the revealing of a greater thirst this world can’t satisfy

What if trials of this life

The rain, the storms, the hardest nights

Are your mercies in disguise

ahh, my absolutely FAVORITE song at the moment!!!

right after if first heard it over a month ago, my uncle committed suicide... our 14 year old dog died... my brother-in-law pushed my sister through a window & left her without use of her arm... we're living with my Grandma as she deals with the loss of her ONLY son & firstborn... it's a mess. oh yeah - and i get to have a brain surgery procedure done while i'm CONSCIOUS in a few weeks!!!

so this song means a lot to me as well... glad to see i'm not the only one. :-)

that is a powerful song! I truly understand what you are saying here, it is through the most difficult of times, the hardest, the saddest, the days that make absolutely no sense, the times when we wonder how will we carry on, those are the days God is truly working in our lives, perfecting us to be where he wants us to be, showing us what really matters, Jesus and making him known and living for him, never leaving us nor forsaking us, always keeping his word and promises indeed. Those trials are never "fun" to go through and we pray for them to be over sooner than later, maybe sometimes we just have to "endure" patiently and allow God to refine us how he wants us refined. Thanks for sharing this with us! I hope it is a great day for you and Clif and the three babes!!

I love it. The lyrics are amazing and perfect. They totally hit me with the idea of what could possibly be messages or reasons for the way things are. Thank you for sharing.
