I did have the final Blend recap scheduled for tonight, but instead I want to get a little serious for a minute. Hope you don’t mind. 😉
Life has been a little rocky lately, and a few curveballs have been thrown our way. Nothing that we can’t handle or that is life threatening, but sometimes life just knocks you around a bit.
However, times like this reminds me of how much I am blessed with great friends and family*.
Friends who will text with me just to encourage me.
Friends who pray for me.
Friends who let me dump my pain on them and help me carry the burden.
Friends who love me even when I am not at my best.
Friends who hug me, let me cry, and then help me put things in perspective.
Thank you for your friendship. Thank you for loving me.
I want to leave you all with a song that has never left my mind these past couple days.
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
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
All the while, You hear each desperate plea
And long that we’d have faith to believe
When friends betray us
When darkness seems to win
We know that pain reminds this heart
That this is not our home
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
