Laura Story wrote this song when her husband was fighting a brain tumor and healing wasn't coming the way they hoped. Here is a link to a YouTube video where Laura tells her story and articulates the meaning of this song::

Doing school online at home and having all our soccer and concerts and church events cancelled this spring has definitely been a challenge. But the pandemic has also given us a lot more time with our family. We have rested more, read more, cooked more, and played more together, and we have made unique memories. 2020 hasn't been what we planned or expected, but it's a very good year!

Blessings
by Laura Story

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.
And all the while, You hear each spoken need
Yet love us 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 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.
And all the while, You hear each desperate plea
And long that we'd have faith to believe.

'Cause what if Your blessings come through raindrops?
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?

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.

It's not our home!

'Cause what if Your blessings come through raindrops?
What if Your healing comes through tears?
And what if a thousand sleepless nights are what it takes to know You're near?

What if my greatest disappointments or the aching of this life
Is the revealing of a greater thirst this world can't satisfy?
And what if trials of this life--
The rain, the storms, the hardest nights
Are Your mercies in disguise?
