Encouragement for when your prayers seem unanswered:

When Laura Story’s prayer for her husband’s healing wasn’t getting answered, she started rethinking her concept of blessing…When we go through trial, does that mean God isn’t blessing us then?

She wrote the song, “Blessings.” She says, “Could God be possibly blessing us through not giving us the things we’re praying for…Even though we have more questions than answers… there’s a blessedness that comes through waiting on the Lord, an intimacy that comes through walking through that valley, a reliance on His Word that we only know when everything else in life fades away. In that sense, I truly feel that I am blessed.” In June 2011, this song reached No. 1 on the Billboard Christian Songs chart, and eventually went on to win the 2012 Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Christian Music Song.
