Blessings while in a funk...

We have all been there. You don't feel like He is listening. Your heart is forever aching. Things aren't as bright and cheery as before. Well, the Lord brought me this song last night. For whatever reason-I needed to share it. I cried the whole time I LISTENED to it. I have heard this song a million times-but last night was different. I was meant to LISTEN to it. Reassurance that my God hears me and is always there-especially when I don't even know I need Him.

-I also think this was for your Mrs. Nikki. :)

Laura Story's "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
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?
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?

  2. I was never a big fan of "christian music." I was first taught that contemporary christian music was not glorifying to Jesus and blah blah blah. When I started working at the salon I work at now, my "boss" would only allow 88.3 on the radio. I honestly hated it but of course never said a word. I don't remember the day when I realized that I was singing along to the words to EVERY song. I started listening to it in my truck. I was praying on some of the lyrics. I feel like Jesus has an amazing sense of humor and humbled me. Don't you just LOVEE how he does that? Anyway to my point of this comment I LOVE THAT SONG! It's actually one of my favorites. The lyrics are so incredibly powerful in my heart in this season of my life! Thanks for sharing :)
