Inspiration Through Song – Blessings

Inspiration comes in different ways. This morning at church it came through a solo. I hope you are blessed and encouraged as much as I was!

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 the 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 deperate 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 the 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 the 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 great 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?
