What If...

We pray for blessings, we pray for peace, comfort for family, protection while we sleep.We pray for healing, prosperity. We pray that Your mighty hand will ease our sufferings. And all the while, You hear each spoken need, yet love us way too much to give us lesser things.
Because 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 the 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 to believe. Because what if Your blessings come through raindrops, what if Your healing comes through tears, what if it takes a thousand sleepless nights, to know that You are near. What if the trials of this life, are your mercies in disguise?
What if my greatest disappointments, or the aching of this life, is the revealing of a greater thirst this world can't satisfy. And what if the trials of this life, are your mercies in disguise.
