Laura Story - Blessings

     The song “Blessings” by Laura Story really ministers to my heart each time I hear it on the radio.  The lyrics and the music are absolutely beautiful.   But these lyrics are not just lovely words set to music.  They have a basis in a deep and abiding trust in Jesus.  When Laura and her husband, Martin, had been married just one year,  Martin was diagnosed with a brain tumor.    Most newly weds don’t sit by the bedside of a spouse hooked up to tubes and breathing machines.  Laura watched and prayed as Martin went through surgery, radiation, chemotherapy, and dealt with the complications of significant post-operative vision and memory loss.  
This is what Laura said in an interview with Christian Today:  “Life is filled with things you don’t expect, but the Bible tells us to respond by trusting God and continuing to worship him, Martin hasn’t received complete healing - and that can be hard at times when we view God as all-powerful and all-loving. But here we are now saying, ‘Yes, this is how faith works.’ God has proven to be faithful. We have been truly blessed out of a circumstance that at first didn’t seem like much of a blessing at all.”
Enjoy the beauty of the song, “Blessings” by Laura Story.
