Blessings

On Sunday I sang this song in church (like I need something else to fill up my week, remind me to tell you about my week sometime....) Anyhow, when I first heard this song I fell in love with it. With everything that has gone on in my life in the last few months/few years this song just spoke to me. So, I thought I would share it with you.





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



And 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?

And 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 that 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?
