Laura Story – Blessings

In a hectic season in my life, Laura Story has been a voice of reason. PJSLB

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

And long that we’d 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

Pause in everything in life

I remember when i was a child, life was just one long (and I mean LONG) day. Waking up in the morning was always a drag, school days were long, and by the time you are home from extra curricular activities you now have a full night of homework. Finally, end of day only to repeat again tomorrow.

As an adult there just doesn’t seem like there is enough time. I need 30 hours to do everything. I just feel so rushed. It’s in these times the words of TobyMac mean more. Sometimes in life we just need to slow down and take things at face value. Working less on emotion and more on knowledge may help make life just a little less hectic. Be loved and be blessed today.
