Blessing in Disguise

Maybe you’ve experienced a time in your life where you thought the world as you know it was over.  You might have thought that you’d never get over this hurt, loss, mistake, but you did.  In the process you realized it brought you closer to God.

That’s what I like to call a “Blessing in Disguise”. 

It’s like the song from Laura StoryBlessings”.  She wrote the lyrics while sitting in her car, on the back of a receipt, after she found out as a newlywed that her husband had a brain tumor.

Got this note from Sally in Pittsburgh, about how that song helped her discover her “Blessing in Disguise”

“I have been struggling with a failed relationship and that I had made such a terrible mistake.  When I initially heard the song, “Blessings”, from Laura Story, I really just didn’t get it.  How could blessings come through raindrops?  I havebeen praying for God’s wisdom about the whole situation because it truly was keeping me up for “a thousand sleepless nights”.  Something clicked recently when I say “something”, I mean God finally got through this thick head of mine and I got what this song says!  By having the raindrops and tears which allowed me to grieve and heal, God got through and healed my heart to be open to what He has for me.  I feel such a release and that a burden has been lifted.  While I still feel badly about the breakup and that I caused hurt to someone, I am no longer buried under the guild.  God healed me through my tears.”

Tell me about a situation in your life that has been a blessing in disguise, on the right hand side of my page, for your chance to win Laura's album and book.

Look Back to Look Forward

Some help for you If you want to stop worrying, and have a more positive outlook on things.  

Look back.  Maybe old photographs of family, an old journal and it will hit how far you’ve come, how much stuff God has helped you through, and the prayers he’s answered. 

That’s kind of the idea behind today’s Day of Praise.  As we get ready to ask for your support tomorrow with Pledge Drive.  Today we want to celebrate all that God has done in the past to remind us what more He has in store for the future. 

Tell us what God has done in your life. You can call 800-900-1300, text your story to 21947, or comment on Facebook at kloveradio like Mary did:

She said:

When she was 2 years old, her siblings and her were taken from her parents and placed in separate foster homes…felt abandoned.  But now as she looks back she sees that  although her parents weren’t there…God never left her or abandoned her. 

She’s thankful that she has been reunited with her family.  She wrote, “He Makes all things new.”
