Have we sought answers from a Higher Being, from the Universe, from God … for the path to nirvana, to Enlightenment, to heaven…?
Haven’t we ask ‘why’ or ‘why me’ to the powers above? Are we nonetheless searching for calm, peace, beautiful, … or merely a way through our struggles?
Our lack, our struggle, our suffering, our pain and sorrow…they are not what they appear to be. So I pray…
Here is a song that speaks to me. (Substitute ‘You‘ in the lyrics as your faith or religious beliefs dictate. 🙂 )
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
And we cry in anger when we cannot feel you near
We doubt your goodness, we doubt your love
As if each 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
That pain reminds this hearts,
That this is not, this is not our home…..
It’s 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?
On a journey,
