Blessings


Happy Sunday!



I thought today I share this wonderful song by Laura Story called "Blessings". I stumbled upon it when I was trying to find some Christian songs and Youtube has Laura Story as one recommended artists to check out. I am so glad I did. She is an amazing singer and her songs are uplifting. 

We are often consumed by fears that we would not be able to overcome trials of life and sometimes we wonder why He let those to happen.

This song Blessings has beautiful meaningful lyrics, very encouraging. 


"Blessings"


by Laura Story


We pray for blessings, we pray for peaceComfort for family, protection while we sleepWe pray for healing, for prosperityWe pray for Your mighty hand to ease our suffering

And all the while, You hear each spoken needYet love us way too much to give us lesser things

'Cause what if your blessings come through rain dropsWhat if Your healing comes through tearsWhat 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 hearWe cry in anger when we cannot feel You nearWe doubt your goodness, we doubt your loveAs if every promise from Your word is not enough

And all the while, You hear each desperate pleaAnd long that we'd have faith to believe

'Cause what if your blessings come through rain dropsWhat if Your healing comes through tearsWhat 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

When friends betray usWhen darkness seems to winWe know that pain reminds this heartThat this is not,This is not our homeIt's not our home

'Cause what if your blessings come through rain dropsWhat if Your healing comes through tearsWhat if a thousand sleepless nights are what it takes to know You're near

What if my greatest disappointments or the aching of this lifeIs the revealing of a greater thirst this world can't satisfy

What if trials of this lifeThe rain, the storms, the hardest nightsAre your mercies in disguise



Have a blessed Sunday!
