Blessings.




Lately, Brian and I have had some frustrating situations and honestly, I needed to be re-inspired. Mt heart was too heavy, once again, to worship my Lord in the way I should. I learned a very important lesson before...not to ever allow myself to get in the way of being close to Him. And yet, I find that I get to this place quite often. Burdens and hurts consume me and I can't see past them to see HIM. What a weakling I can be.

So, today, I decided I needed a new song. I went on a search. Guess what the first one was???

Blessings.

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

Isn't the Lord a good and gracious God? Providing His children with amazing scripture over and over again...and also leading them to wonderful healing words of song.
