Blessings in Disguise

I was once again reminded this week to quit worrying and give it to God. I spent two weeks stressing about something that I didn't know for a fact was going to happen, but felt pretty sure it would. I was worried about how it would affect someone I care about.

Then, the thing I was worrying about happened. At first I was angry and upset, but as the day and the week went on, I began to see how much of a blessing it actually was. I never would have thought it could be such a blessing, but it has been. The person I was worrying about--I haven't seen her this happy and relaxed in awhile and it's a beautiful thing.

So here's my point--we worry, worry, worry--all for nothing. He's got it under control. So often, the things we worry about are truly blessings in disguise.

Worrying about something today? Let it go.

Blessings
Laura Story

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
And 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 rain drops
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 rain drops
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

When friends betray us
When darkness seems to win
We know that 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 rain drops
What if Your healing comes through tears
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
What if trials of this life
The rain, the storms, the hardest nights
Are your mercies in disguise
