Blessings – Laura Story

Thank goodness it’s the weekend! Time to lighten up a bit, as I feel as if I’ve been dwelling on some heavy topics the last few weeks.  I would like to focus on the lighter side of the Christian life for a little, and look for the spiritual things and areas God’s providing for me to grow into. We’ll see what pops up..

I hope everyone’s weekend is relaxing, calm, and carefree.. just as I hope mine is, as well.  God be with you all.

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
As long as we 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 

“Blessings”

  1. One of my current favorite songs. I have had blessings come through raindrops and healing from tears…

  2. Thanks so much, Streim.. God bless and keep you. I appreciate you reading.

  3. there are a lot of what if’s and that is not bad, they can be ways for us to look at things in a different way, not just one way. what if i did it this way, or what if I did it that way, what if God wants this to happen and so on. We can try and see blessings in every situation but sometimes the situation is not necessarily a blessing so we ask for the spirit of discernment to help us see what is actually going on in any situation. It is then that we realize if it is a blessing from God or something we could do with out or just not have to put up with.

  4. Have a wonderful weekend!

    Walk daily with God at your side!
