My wife loves to sing and has recently been singing a song she heard from the radio, noticeably more than other songs: Blessings by Laura Story. The song focuses on the fact that the hard times in our lives can even be blessings from God – because it is in our dependence of Him that we perceive him more fully – as a great, powerful God… and that is whether He chooses to act upon our requests or not.
In marriage, the covenant calls both people to cherish and support each other… until death parts them. In those times of grief, it can be especially hard to thank the Lord for blessings that will come as a result of the loss of a spouse. Yet, God can give us the strength to do just that, in His timing.
Take some time to listen to the song below. Laura also talks about the inspiration behind the song – you’ll want to listen to that as well.
