Blessings in Disguise

March 24, 2011

I was talking to friends recently about this topic and one mentioned this song. I hadn’t heard it at the time.

Are you thankful for the tears? The pain, trials, and heartaches of this life? I’ll admit, I wish I were more than I am.

I know that I wouldn’t be who I am now if I didn’t struggle with temptations or my own selfish attitude on a daily basis.

I don’t know where I would be right now if my parents had both lived and been strong, faithful Christians. Or those old loves would’ve always worked out.

I don’t know who I would be right now if the prayers I fervently prayed (and pray) were always answered with a “yes” instead of a “no”.

I don’t know a lot of things but I appreciate the raindrops, the tears, and the thousand sleepless nights. I’m thankful for the nights I stared out the window and asked God, “Now what do I do?” Only because those trying times brought me closer to Jesus.

What if blessings come through raindrops?
What if healing comes through tears?
What if a thousand sleepless nights are what it takes to know He’s near?
What if trials of this life are His mercies in disguise?

What if?
