Day 120; Blessings come through rain drops

Day 120 of 365; Blessings come through rain drops

…”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….” ~ Laura Story ‘Blessings’


^ Photo taken with my iphone of the Chippewa River on a rainy & gloomy morning.. but just as I was passing over, the sun started shining. 🙂

Sometimes we don’t always see the blessings God puts in our lives, we are too busy looking for instant results, instant miracles, that we miss the little things-which are big things in Gods eyes. I was so blessed by two amazing women yesterday and I am so thankful to God that he led both of them to cross my path when they did. I was starting to lose sight of the wonders of God and they reminded me how much he loves me and how much I need him in my life.

I took my morning drive this a.m, through Carson Park in Eau Claire and even though it was pouring rain, I still went for a small walk and just took it all in.

I was thankful for the rain, it felt so refreshing. Once I got back into my car, the song Blessings by Laura Story came on the radio {WWIB 103.7} .and it was perfect, just perfect for me today.

Take some time to listen to this song, 2-3 times if you need to, soak it in, listen to it, feel it, close your eyes and understand what it is truly saying to you………….

Have a beautiful weekend and keep an eye out for the blessings in your life-most of the time, they come in ways you do not expect,



Laura Story- Blessings Lyrics


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
