The Mercies of God In Disguise?

Over the past few days, I've been hearing a song over the radio a lot. The name of the song is "Blessings" by Laura Story. In the song she asks the some tough questions 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 are so quick to dismiss this idea. We cry out that since God is good, He would never allow anything bad to happen to us. But what if those experiences draw us closer to Him? What if they cause us to better understand who God is? What if they those very experiences enable us to have empathy for those who are suffering in this world. What if those things make us "real" to the world around us?

Would it be worth it? I believe it is.

Blessings!
