Music Monday: "Blessings"

Some of you may have heard this beautiful new song on the radio, and if you haven't, you need to listen to it! Laura Story is one of my favorite artists, I've enjoyed other songs that she has written such as, "Indescribable" (made popular by Chris Tomlin) and "Mighty to Save" (another favorite of mine!)

She has a sweet, clean voice and I love that I can hear a little emotion in her voice toward the end of this song. I love the message of this song, and the idea that God's answers to prayer may be different than what we pray for, for our own good!

Here are the lyrics to Blessings by Laura Story:


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 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 plead
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

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

You can listen to Laura talk about the inspiration behind the song here, and talk about the CD and the song here. (click on the video) She has a blog on her website too, www.LauraStorymusic.com

I got this CD for my birthday, and I love all of the songs on it!
