After journaling the emotions going through me earlier today I heard the song “Blessings” by Laura Story for the first time. I wept. The lyrics are below. Thank you Lord for speaking to my heart through this song:

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

You can listen here: Blessings


On You I am calling…

On You I am Calling

I’ve always seen the glass half full
actually more like overflowing.
Now it’s looking kinda empty…
where is the water going?

I’ve always moved ahead with hope
but right now no progress is showing.
I feel no direction Lord…
I don’t know where I’m going.

My faith feels a little broken…
all vision is waning.
You’ve always been my constant Lord.
Right now I don’t know what You’re saying.

Give me Your thoughts oh Lord
for mine are so conflicting.
Rid me of this confusion…
I need to know what You’re convicting.

I’ve always known Your love for me.
Your affection never swaying.
Right now I feel forgotten.
Yet, I know You hear me praying.

Grip my hand real tight I pray.
I feel like I am falling.
I need You right now Lord.
It’s Your name I’m calling.

Calm my anxious heart oh Lord.
Get me beyond human emotion.
Help me to see Your truth
and trust You with complete devotion.
