10,000 Reasons

10,000 Reasons

Bless the Lord, O my soul; And all that is within me, bless His holy name! Bless the Lord, O my soul, And forget not all His benefits. Psalms 103:1-2 NKJV

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.

You’re rich in love

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

    Your name is Yahweh, Your name is Yahweh, You’re a miracle working God. Your name is Yahweh.

    This year has been good to me and my family. A year of great miracles. For me it is a year unimaginable and full of pleasant happiness and happenings.

    My admission to Ghana School of Law was the Lord’s doing and it is marvelous in my sight.

    Thanks be to the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. For he made way for me where there seemed to be no way.

    My year of manifold blessings.

    My heart is full of praise for all He has done for me and my family.
    Awesome, awesome, awesome.

    Thanks so much for this soothing message.

    God richly bless you.

        I bless God for all he’s done for me this year especially for a job change.

    Wow what a way to thank God for keeping us till this time. May His Holy name forever be praised. I have more than 10,000 reasons to give thanks because I wasn’t even meant to be born by doctor’s ideology but…….I made it this far.
    God how can I praise you.
    Sue thanks for leading us to know that there are 10million reasons to thank our father in heaven

    We suffered the COVID impact differently. The good thing about bad news is that we have the will power to make decisions on how we get affected.

    I was not going to lock up myself, crying about something I have no control over.

    I took a deep dive into my childhood dreams and realised my early passion for writing.

    Today, I completed 3 books…working on the 4th one.

    I shall start with the publications as soon as God endorses the books. We must learn to be positive during challenging situations..

    God bless you for this message. Although,we know how there was a total shrinkage in our life this year. But we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to those who are called according to his purpose. Romans ( 8:28) . Because it encourages us to stand still and to prepare ourselves before the day. For we don’t know the day nor the hour Mathew ( 25: 13 ). God bless you once more for this massage. This message reminds us about the end time which will be so tough than this
