"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."
Laura Story is the music artist behind the powerful song, Blessings. I don't know if you've listened to it, but its message has been a source of comfort and healing for me personally over the past few months. If you're going through a storm, know that God uses our trials to refine and strengthen us as His children, and He is with you.
I thought the following video of Laura sharing about her song and how it evolved from her own life was filled with deep truths and mystery on God's goodness for those who believe.
"I heard, but I did not understand. So I asked, “My lord, what will the outcome of all this be?”
He replied, “Go your way, Daniel, because the words are rolled up and sealed until the time of the end. Many will be purified, made spotless and refined, but the wicked will continue to be wicked. None of the wicked will understand, but those who are wise will understand." Daniel 12:8-10
