Still Counting

This counting is prompted by a recent contemporary Christian song, Blessings, by Laura Story. The context asks: “what if your blessings come like raindrops, what if your healing comes through tears.” These are thought-provoking lyrics:

"What if my greatest disappointments
Or the aching of this life
Is the revealing of a greater thirst
This world can't satisfy?
And what if trials of this life
The rain, the storms, the hardest nights
Are Your mercies in disguise?"

You may need to cry for help in the counting of raindrops. Have you ever tried counting raindrops? The mere thought of trying it is daunting. However, that thought does bring to mind another old, familiar hymn, from the Praise and Worship Hymnal (p. 189), There Shall be Showers of Blessing. The words speak of “mercy drops ’round us are falling.”

I will keep counting, be thankful for mercy drops, and plead for showers.
