Blessings – Laura Story   3 comments

 

Blessings by Laura Story

If you have not heard this song – Listen to it and purchase it and then keep listening to it.  Memorize the song or at least the chorus. 🙂

Read the story behind the song.  GOOD STUFF!

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

We pray for wisdom
Your voice to hear
And 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

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
And 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, 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
And 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 the revealing of a greater 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

Broken And Beautiful

As we break this bread
As we drink this cup
Lord we remember

How You gave Your life
On a brutal cross
Lord we remember

This is the way
You’ve chosen to save
This is the way You make all things new

Broken and beautiful
Extravagant love
Prodigal grace

Broken and beautiful
God’s perfect justice
Mercy’s embrace

As we break this bread
As we drink this cup
Lord we remember

It was for my sin
That Your flesh was torn 
Lord we remember
