At choir rehearsal tonight for our October 15 concert, Jereme,our guest conductor, reminded us that we have a message to proclaim in our singing which got me to thinking about one of the strongest messages we will try to convey: It is from the song Blessings by Laura Story:
‘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 all have hardships, and this song gives a radically different way to view what they bring to our lives.
