Blessings Lyrics

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

    This song reminds me that God does not promise us happiness. Some of us spend our lives chasing rainbows or chasing the wind in a never ending quest for “so called” happiness. We bemoan our struggles and trials not realizing that faithful endurance produces strength and perseverance to overcome. I am thankful to God for reminding me that blessings so often do come from trials and disappointments. It is when we are weak and broken in spirit that He is strong and able to speak to us. Thank you Laura for such a beautiful song and reminder that this world is not our home!

    I heard this song in my car today. It’s been a really tough week. I work in home health care with seniors and had 2 of my long term clients pass away in the same week, along with some other family struggles. I have been praying about all of it but still felt pretty lost. This song brought tears to my eyes. It was exactly what I needed at that moment. It’s so easy to just focus on our painful moments and lose sight of God in the process. Thank you to Laura for this gorgeous song that brought my heart and attention back to where they need to be. And, thank you to Life102.5 for being there for support and inspiration!

    I have been a fan of this song for a long time. It reminds me to not expect this life to give me true happiness,for only life with Jesus will be able to make me truly happy. My husband and I know that the struggles in our 40 year marriage and raising eight children have molded us in faith who we are today. We could write a book on our little miracles that God has shown us when we have trusted him with all our hearts.

    This song came at a perfect time. It was on my playlist years ago, but I had forgotten about it until I heard it today. I was broken this week, hurt to the core by someone’s cruel words. The song has a verse exactly about that. I never heard it before. After crawling inside my sadness for a while, I listened to the stories during the Fall Share, I decided to trust in the Lord instead of myself. I realized each time that I tried to feel sorry for myself, I was interrupted by a friend, a visit, a gift from a coworker who remembered my favorite soda, a phone call, a visit from my parents and then blessings from my dad and a real friend. God puts angels in our path to help us along times of heartbreak. He brings us back from despair. Thank you for your music. It was exactly what I needed.
