Wednesday Worship: Blessings

Sometimes God's blessings are obvious for all to see.  At other times, we wonder and question whether God is blessing us.  Has He forgotten us?  Even when we know in our heart that He never forsakes His own, our head may yet ponder.

We pray for blessings,
We pray for peace.
Comfort for family,
Protection while we sleep.
We pray for healing,
We pray for your mighty hand
To ease our suffering.

And all the while you hear each spoken need
You love us way to much to give us lesser things.

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?
And what if trials of this life are your mercies in disguised?

Have you counted your blessings lately?

Peace & Blessings,

At this moment, with two of them screaming and fighting, I'm really trying. LOL

We all have had those moments, Jessica. Try to find the quiet in the midst of the storm, even if it means standing right there, closing your eyes and willing your ears to close up, if only for a few seconds.
