blessings 6


medium_4267912939At ten weeks pregnant, we found out last week during a routine appointment that God had chosen to take our baby home.  My heart is grieving and aching for this child I will never hold.  This is the fourth child we’ve lost, yet the pain is the same and maybe even greater this time.

I am thankful that I “sorrow not as those who have no hope”, for I know that I will see this child in Heaven.  I am trusting in my precious Heavenly Father who has a plan even when I do not understand, and if I allow Him, He will use this to help me know Him more.

A friend sent me this song and it has been a balm to my soul….

Blessings
by 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
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
And 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
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 that pain reminds this heart
That this is not, this is not our home
It’s not our home
