Are they Pains or Blessings?

We've all asked, "Why me, God?" At some time or another, most of us have wondered why bad things happen, why we get hurt, why we suffer, and we sometimes even question God's timing.

A recent song gave me a new way to digest these thoughts, and I hope this will bring you comfort too. Please consider this ...

"What if your blessings come through raindrops?
What if your healing comes through tears?
And what if a thousand sleepless nights
are what it taks to know YOU are near?
What if trials of this life ... the rain, the storms, the hardest nights ... are YOUR mercies in disguise?"

(Taken from Laura Story's song "Blessings")

What if our greatest pains are disguised by God's greatest blessings? Something to think about ...

"Let us come before Him with thanksgiving and extol Him with music and song."
Psalm 95:2

When we praise HIM -- especially in the bad times -- we ensure our victory!
