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 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 night
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 dought your goodness, we dought 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 beleive

'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?

And what if trials of this life
Are your mercies disguised?

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?
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?

Laura, with wisdom beyond her years, describes perfectly the poison infecting our churches. Self centered desire for wealth and health have overlaid what should be our deepest desire, to know God more deeply. Clergy are delivering what our"itching ears want to hear" instead of scolding us for shallow faith based only on our experiences and not the promises of God in the Bible. Laura gets it.
