This song has some of the best lyrics I've ever heard in any song. I'm moved by Laura's transparency and confessional challenges to believers in this incredible song. I am wrecked by the lyrics, "What if my greatest disappointments, or the aching of this life, Is the revealing of a greater thirst this world can't satisfy?" As believers we need to remember that this world is not our home. We have a much bigger agenda, and the security of everlasting life as promised by our Savior Jesus. As this song so beautifully depicts, we weren't made for this world. Amen.

I downloaded the single of this song. Her voice is beautiful and this song really moves me. If you research the meaning of the song by the artist, she is talking about blessings that are not only the good things in life, but also the trials and learning experiences that shape and mold us into more perfect saints. She reminds us that we are not of this world, and we are destined to return to live with Heavenly Father. This song is very touching and uplifting for any listener.

During the last days of my niece this song was constantly playing on KLove. The part was she sings "Comfort for family, protection while we sleep, we pray for healing, for prosperity, we pray for Your mighty hand to ease our suffering all the while, you hear each spoken need. yet love us way too much to give us lesser things." The Lord gave me peace through the pain of my lost and I thank Him.

My husband and I went on a road trip the 2nd week in June, 2011. I hesitated leaving at the last moment because my 8 year old little cock-a-poo had been sick and was on antibiotics. Normally I wouldn't be concerned as she was left in responsible hands......however......as we went to leave she looked me right in my eyes and wimpered very sadly, which was extremely unusual.

As we were driving, this song came on the radio and I began to weep. I told my husband that something must be really wrong with little Zoe and that I felt she was trying to tell me something.

6 days later we returned to find a very happy little Zoe and I felt much better. I took her back to the Vet that same day we got home for bloodwork. As a result of the bloodwork we scheduled an untrasound. It was determined that she had cancer in her liver and pancreas and there was nothing we could do. The very next day she took a turn for the worse and we decided to euthanize her. My precious little Zoe who was so full of life! I didn't want to see her suffer.

I thought back to the way she looked at me that day we were leaving. She didn't want me to leave her. And even though we didn't know of the cancer at that time, God was preparing me to let her go. Her passing has been a "blessing in disguise" because the grief has lead me back to a place with the Lord where I am again praying and reading my Bible. That was just 8 days ago, and I miss her so! Thank-you for allowing me to share this.

I wish I could give this song more than 5 stars. There have been a lot of excellent contemporary Christian songs produced in the last few years (not to mention the last several decades). I am moved by everything from the Newsboys to the Gospel Quartet of Greater Vision.

But the "Blessings" lyrics are so powerful I can never make it through the song without tears. This song brings conviction, peace, soul searching, and gratitude for our Lord and Savior.

Probably the most powerful part of the lyrics to me are "We cry in anger when we cannot feel you near." Guilty as charged. But then later she reminds us "This is not our home." The entire song is a reminder not to focus on our problems but the One who is greater than any problem.

This song would be my first recommendation to someone looking for an introduction to Christian music (apart from the standard hymns).

I first fell in love with this song when I was going through hard times a few years back. I would just cry listening, but I was hopeful as the words resonated with me. And then my 3.5 month old baby boy passed away this past April. All I could think about was this song, and it has kept me with my eyes focused on Christ even in the midst of the hardest thing I am journeying through. God Bless you Laura Story as you have used your own pain to articulate what others could not, and give hope all at the same time!

I heard Blessings on the 91.5 FM here in Florida and the song immediately affected me so much that at that moment I wanted to reach out and touch to someone in the same situation as Laura did and share the beautiful message "He is always there for you even in your darkest hour". This song is now my favorite song and prayer and I am learning to sing and play on my guitar. Laura Story is indeed inspiring. Her words uplifted and humbled me. Thanks Laura
