I am sharing a note of Encouragement for you. I haven’t done one in a while, but felt someone needed it today.
Trials and hardships seem to be all around us making some days harder than others. I have found comfort in the Laura Story song, Blessings where she talks about what if raindrops came as blessings, healing came through tears, and trials were mercies in disguise. These are powerful words to me on difficult days because they provide a comfort from God promising to provide blessings even when I can’t see them.
I believe God answers our prayers through tear drops because He knows every tear we cry for every tear is a prayer we don’t know how to speak.
I have included her complete lyrics to 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
Sweet Friend, if today is one of those difficult days where you have cried tear drops, find comfort God is turning those tears into blessings. He is answering your prayers even when you don’t have the words to speak. He loves you and is wiping your every tear and answering the prayers they represent. Hang in there friend and know brighter days are ahead.
