Laura Story’s “Blessings” came on my ipod at about the halfway point of my drive home today, and a mix of wanting to get the words right + really enjoying the melody & message of the song led to my repeating it a bajillion times (almost an hour), which is probably why the drive home felt a lot quicker than the drive to Dallas!
 
while i have nothing to complain about in life at this moment (it’s kind of flat…nothing bad, nothing super exciting. yeah….hopefully my life has not peaked. that would be kind of sad..), it’s still a song that hits home (at least for me), i feel, no matter what life’s situations (good/bad, school/work/play/all/none) =)
although i guess it’s more of a mellow song. but the lyrics make up for it for non mellow-song people?
 
but while i’m still (surprisingly) on my computer, here yall go:
 
 
Laura Story, 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 heal 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?
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,
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 a 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?
