A blessing in disguise

What about learning a new idiom today instead of having a cup of coffee in the morning? If it becomes habitual, you could learn as many as even 30 idioms per month! That's impressive! Let's see...




Imagine a situation like that:

"You know, I had my car stolen three months ago. Brand new, can you believe it?"

"What a bad luck! I'm sorry to hear that!"

"No need to be sorry. It turned out quite well, eventually. I got a full compensation from the insurance company and I bought a much better and cheaper second-hand car. I'm glad, because I saved a lot of money."

You could react like this:

"So, at the beginning you were upset but now you don't regret it."


Or you could use an idiom to comment on it:

"So it was a blessing in disguise, wasn't it?"


A BLESSING IN DISGUISE is something that at first seemed to be a misfortune or a bad luck, but in the end it turned out to bring a good result.

(Dosłownie to 'błogosławieństwo w przebraniu'; takie polskie 'nie ma tego złego, co by na dobre nie wyszło' lub 'szczęście w nieszczęściu')



I have got no idea who that artist is, but she sings clearly about blessings in disguises, so I guess that's the most important thing!




We pray for blessings, we pray for peace.

Comfort for family, protection while we sleep.
We pray for healing, prosperity.
We pray for Your mighty hand to ease our suffering.

All the while, You hear each spoken need. 
Your love is too way too much to give us lesser things.

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 night, are Your mercies in disguise?

We pray for wisdom, Your voice to hear.
We cry in anger when we cannot feel You near.
We doubt Your goodness, we doubt Your love.
As if every promise from Your word is not enough.

All, the while, You hear each desperate plea.
And long that we'd have faith to believe.

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 night, are Your mercies in disguise?

When friends betray us, when darkness seems to win;
We know that pain reminds this heart, that this is not, this is not our home.
It's not our home.

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 my greatest disappointments, or the aching of this life;
Is a revealing of greater thirst that a world can't satisfy?

And what if trials of this life, the rain, the storms, the hardest nights;
Are Your mercies in disguise?
