TSMSS ~ Blessings

It's Then Sings My Soul Saturday and I wanted to share a song that really touched my heart this week.  Sometimes we can pray and pray for relief from trials or pain and yet seem to find no relief.

But have you discovered any blessings even in the midst of your difficult season?  

I'm learning to keep my eyes and ears open for those everyday blessings.  

God is faithful.

God is good.  

And God is unchanging.    


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 the 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 


When friends betray us 
When darkness seems to win 
We know the pain reminds this heart 
That this is not, 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

Blessings and love,

Debbie Petras

  1. Isn't this an amazing song? I love it too, Debbie. I had a friend last Sunday night tell me that she found it last weekend at just the right time, as she deals with hard issues in her life right now.

    God is so good to bless us with sweet music to remind us of how faithful, good, and unchanging he is.

    Have a blessed weekend!
    Love you,

  2. I love this song too Debbie. The words speak so much, and are such a comfort many times.


  3. I can't tell you how I needed this song today! I love it and God is using it to minister to me right now.

    Thank you, my friend!

  4. Beautiful, Debbie! So appreciate it! Nice reminder that we need to remember our blessings!

  5. Great song! Thanks for sharing it. I have found it to be so true. Though difficult times will come, God will always bring something good from them!

  6. Hi Debbie,
    The words from this song are so encouraging. In our darkest trials, we tend to think God is absent and working. Yet, perhaps His deepest work and blessings are being done.

    Thanks for the music and your visit today and for the IRL post. We need to plan an IRL for us. You are so close to me! I'd love to meet you.


  7. Oh, I love this song, Debbie, and I play it often as a reminder of what God uses in our lives to grow us closer to Him. Thank you so much for sharing it with us.
    Love & hugs,

  8. I love this, Debbie and the words of the chorus especially stand out. "What if your blessings come through raindrops..."

    Have a wonderful and blessed week!


  9. Debbie, I blogged about this also on my blog.Thank you for that song. I had never heard it before now--what a blessing!

  10. Howdy, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and i was
    just wondering if you get a lot of spam remarks?
    If so how do you stop it, any plugin or anything you can suggest?
    I get so much lately it's driving me mad so any help is very much appreciated.
