#thirstythursday / what if Your blessings really do come through raindrops?

the daily Starr thirsty thursday

You’ve probably heard the song more times that you can remember.

It still stops me in my tracks.

I heard it in the car the other day and started tearing up.

‘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

Have you ever heard the story behind the song?

Laura Story shares her heart and I promise this is the very best way you could spend 8 minutes tonight.

Blessings.

Laura wrote this song from words penned in her journal.

I think about that often as I write in my own journal.

God, what if what I’m going through now is something you intend to use to help others?

For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us. – Romans 8:18

I have a few friends that are going through some REALLY tough trials right now.

Sickness.
Confusion.
Emotional stress.
Trouble with children.
Anxiety.

Tonight as I pray, I ask that God reveals himself even in the midst of these situations. I pray that we see our lives and our struggles through His eyes and that He gives us grace for each moment. Day by day.

Are you going through a difficult situation or trial in your life right now?

It’s never easy, but know that you are never alone. Writing in a journal or sharing with a trusted prayer partner can do wonders. Whatever it is you’re facing, be encouraged tonight. Surround yourself with God’s Word and trust in the hope that only He can offer.
