SONG OF THE WEEK: Blessings by Laura Story

Do you need a sweet, gentle song that speaks directly to the hurt in your heart?  Laura Story delivers just such a song called Blessings.  Her clear, passionate voice shares the pain and faith that God reaches into our lives for our good with each prayer we lift– whether it’s answered the way we want are not.  Here’s the big question…”What if trials of this life are Your mercies in disguise?”  Laura calls this song a “Diary entry” because it is so personal.  Thank you for sharing…

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

I have two videos.  One a chance to hear her lovely voice and song and the other where she tells of the struggles with her husband’s health which inspired the song.  ALSO if you are in the St Louis area, she will be here in concert through Joyfm on Feb. 9th. I’m there!  Who’s going? For more info:
