“Cuz 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?
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 hardest nights
are your mercies in disguise”
Blessings – Laura Story
I often wonder about blessings. They come in all different shapes and sizes and sometimes we don’t even realize a blessing that is staring us in the face until it is entirely too late.
I do for others because it is how I show I care. I live my life in a way that someday I will stand before God knowing I did the right thing….letting go of anger and hurt, allowing others to feel forgiveness, showing love to all that I come in contact with each day, encouraging others to be their best….I do not need anything in return.
I don’t often see or feel the blessings in my life. I am too busy living. Lately I have been getting blessings back in spades. I am so aware of the blessings I receive but not feeling deserving. I often wonder what I have done to deserve all I have and where I am. I guess they are reminders that I am greatly blessed, highly favored, and deeply loved. Peace.
