Lyrics to 10,000 Reasons by Matt Redman (not in order):

“bless the Lord oh my soul, I worship His holy name, sing like never before, oh my soul I worship Your holy name, Jesus I will worship Your Holy name…….You’re rich in love and slow to anger, for all Your goodness I will keep on singing..I will sing your praises for ten thousands years forever more, oh my soul I worship Your Holy name”

I think I would get kicked out of cyberspace if I attempted to write a 10,000 reasons post about why God is THE GOD of my life. Obviously it would be waaaay tooo long!!  I wish I could write or speak or something all the reasons I’m sooo grateful for God being my Master and Savior.  In all my 50 years of living only the last 3 years have been worth it…seriously.  I can see why some things were, just to bring me to this point in time.  Now that’s deep to me.  We can go our whole lives and never find purpose or think we have it but I’m here to tell you outside of God, you don’t know what true purpose is for your life.

All the material blessings, education, career, friends, family, money, traveling etc etc meant nothing until I found God.  Yes, I said found because He was here I just wasn’t paying Him any attention…not for real.  I can finally say I’m free or becoming freer to be me..just me…His making of me.  It’s gratifying to like the skin your in.  It’s freeing not having to explain your spiritual walk to people…let them just watch God in action.  It makes my heart flutter sometimes because the magnitude of Gods love for me…..well I don’t think I could stand the weight of it….so I usually sing “bless the Lord O my soul.” Nothing could ever compare or replace God’s work in my life.  I’m just overwhelmed.

My desire is to be free, bold, wise, loving, compassionate, have the mind of Christ and pure in God’s sight for His work.

10,000 Reasons….forever more!!!
