Listening to “Blessings” by Laura Story
Today, I go on youtube and browse for a video of “Blessings” a song that has brought me on a journey to peace. Recently, my family has hurdled one crisis after the other. Storms have come and go in the past but not with the frequency they have arrived these past few weeks.
Still, the storms are blessings in themselves. I speak with experience when I say that there is a silver lining in every dark cloud. I am thankful to the Lord for the storms for they have brought with them the assurance that the Lord hears our prayers. The storms in themselves are our answered prayers. Healing is on the way for our family. Indeed, sometimes blessings come from teardrops.
“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.”
