BLESSINGS!

HAPPY NEW YEAR GUYS!

I know today is not first of January but we are still within the first month of the year so at least the year is still young.

We all get excited about the New Year and there is always this high positive energy in us. We go to church and pray so hard about all the good things that we are expecting in 2015 and then it just feels like 2015 is that year things will eventually fall into place for us. However, we often forget to prepare ourselves for the obstacles and challenges that will come. Yes they will come and we can’t escape them.

I know we pray; binding and casting every bad thing but I have learned (especially in 2014) that it is not about binding and casting them. It is more about praying to God just like we pray to become richer and successful, we should also remember to pray to him to help us go through challenges and obstacles that will come. Especially at this stage in our lives; we are young and energetic and then between social media and friends, keeping up with trends and the relationships we find ourselves and lots more.

Well, it is going to be hard if I keep trying to explain to you why we should always expect obstacles and challenges and why we should pray for them. Since we all love music, I decided to get this song – It explains it all and it will bore you less…

BLESSINGS…
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 is 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?
