When Matt Redman composed the song “10,000 reasons (Bless the Lord o my soul)”, it was meant to be a filler on the album. Little did he know that that song was going to be the most popular song on the album. Perhaps it was because the message of the song resonated with so many people. The song says: “The sun comes up it’s a new day dawning. It’s time to sing your song again. Whatever may come and whatever lies before me, let me be singing when the evening comes”.
The year 2020 has been a year of all sorts for many. Some of us had to shelve some of our plans for this year, because of COVID 19. Many businesses took the hit from the pandemic, though other businesses soared.
Personally, I am grateful to God for His protection over my life and my family’s and for the addition of one new member to the family.
However the year went for you, if you have made it to the end, then you have every reason to give thanks and glory to God. So let your heart sing as you recollect what God has done for you this year.

And you’re slow to anger
Your name is great
And your heart is kind
For all your goodness
I will keep on singing
Ten thousand reasons
For my heart to find
