What if Your blessings come through Raindrops?

In times of difficulty music really speaks to my soul.

There has been so much swirling around me lately that when I heard this song today it was perfect.

The title of this post comes from the lyrics of this song. And these last few lines?

"And what if trials of this life
The rain, the storms, the hardest nights
Are Your mercies in disguise?"

What if that is the case? It seems that we hear much about "tender mercies" but there are times when time goes by and it seems like those tender mercies don't ever come.

What if our trials and difficulties are our "mercies in disguise"?

What if?


Another song that touched me today is one called "Again" by Jessie Clark Funk. It must be fairly new because I can't find information about it anywhere. But if you get a chance to find that song and listen to it I highly recommend it.

Have a good Sunday.

Hadn't thought of trials as being mercies. Interesting thought. I'm sure it is true, though it is difficult to think of it that way at the time.

I wish I could convince my heart that this is true right now. Although, I know it's a beautiful thought. I'm banking on time healing.

I think that oftentimes, they are. And it is usually not obvious until we've passed through the difficulty. It's a good thing to try to remember though, isn't it?

I know without a doubt that this trial my family is going through right now with my husband's health is a blessing in disguise. I know that no matter how hard it is, there are things to be learned and mercies in disguise. I've already seen some of the blessings. Thanks for sharing this.

tender mercies......I know they are there, even though it seems like they are so HIDDEN.

I'll hang on to that.

Sometimes, it's hard to see the blessings through the rain...

I just wish trials weren't so hard sometimes!

Thinking of you, Shanna.

I think they are mercies in hindsight when we can grasp the bigger picture. I can think of several times when this has been true in our lives- but not until years later when the pain of the moment has passed.
