mercies in disguise?

Do you ever have those days when everything is going great, and then, bam... you get the wind knocked out of you? Figuratively of course. Whenever I feel like that there are 2 songs that I ALWAYS listen to over and over again... Better Than I... and this one that I posted the lyrics to. Blessings. Yes, I really love music in case you haven't picked up on that by now. :) That and spending time with God really does help put everything into perspective for me. The trials & disappointments of life... all that stuff that we feel is tearing us apart... I believe that God has a plan for us in all of it. Man, it hurts like crazy... but in the end, it's usually for our good. Honestly, I haven't come to that end yet. But one day... one day I think it'll all make sense. But then again, maybe some things we'll never know until we reach heaven. Guess it keeps life fun, huh? It'd be pretty boring if we always knew what was going to happen before it ever did. God really does have this all figured out... so that, thankfully, we don't have to. We just have to have to trust that He does. And there are my very few, random thoughts for the night. :) God bless...

We pray for blessings
  1. 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


    '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?
