Blessings

I haven't posted in a while, but it has been on my heart for weeks to share these lyrics with my SB family. They touched me deeply, and I have a feeling that they will touch you as well.

As a Christian, I know these Truths in my head, but sometimes my heart takes a while to catch up. I find that music often helps me along.

This journey we are on with our children, it is a process. Almost a constant grieving. Some days I am a walking testimony of these lyrics, while other days I cling to them for dear life.

Wherever you are right now -- today -- I pray that these lyrics meet you there and fill your heart with a love and comfort only God can provide.

Have a blessed week everyone!

"Blessings" by 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 us 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
And 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


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
And what if trials of this life are Your mercies in disguise


When friends betray us
When darkness seems to win
We know the pain reminds this heart
That this is not, this is not our home,
It's not our home


Cause what if Your blessings come through raindrops
What if Your healing comes through tears
And what if a thousand sleepless nights
Are what it takes to know You’re near

What if my greatest disappointments
Or the aching of this life
Is the revealing of a greater thirst this world can’t satisfy

And what if trials of this life
The rain, the storms, the hardest nights
Are Your mercies in disguise
