Vulnerability

Standard

is scary. The night was full of it, raw emotion, truth and memories. Reality staired me in the face. I’m broken, but through that brokenness reminded of love, forgiveness, and what it is that I need to do. Prayers would be very much appreciated and welcomed.

A different perspective

Standard

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
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

And all the while You hear each desperate plea
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
It’s 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?

On the way home from Hume Lake, I heard this song multiple times on the radio. I had never heard it before…but it stuck with me. When I had time to just sit down and read through the lyrics and not have all the other distractions around me I saw hope. When songs or messages or advice that friends have given comes up over and over and is confirmed in multiple ways…it gives me a sort of comfort in it because I feel like that is how God is teaching me the most…through repetition. And so I wanted to share this with you, whoever it is that is reading this 🙂

I’m off to Nevada for the week
