Something to Hear

http://youtu.be/1CSVqHcdhXQ

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 is 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
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 raindrops
What if Your healing comes through tears?
And 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

'Cause what if Your blessings come through raindrops
What if Your healing comes through tears?
And 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?

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

I hope you enjoy your Sunday dear friends. I will be posting soon about the Vintage Marketplace show. It was so much fun! Plus I will show you my goodies I brought home!
Happy Sunday!

Love,
Sonya

I loved this poem-the words are so true, difficult, but true...a thousand sleepless nights, yes.

Beautiful poem. Just wanted to say "hi" and thanks for visiting my blog and for your comments. I will definitely check out 1000 Gifts. The study I am doing is Lord, Change My Attitude by James MacDonald & Barb Peil, a Lifeway Adult workshop - it has started out amazing, but so convicting. I love that you rescue animals! My DH and I are wildlife rehabilitators and also rescue animals. We have had the privilege of getting close up and personal with so many that we never thought we would - so incredible. I would imagine you have some wonderful animal encounter opportunities in Oregon :-) Thanks again, God bless....Jules
