Ten Thousand Reasons

May be an image of nature, sky and tree

Bless the Lord, Oh my soul
Oh my soul, worship his holy name
Sing like never before, Oh my soul
I’ll worship your holy name

With so much in life and the world that is negative I’m continuing to muse on being positive.

I deliberately look for good people and good situations. I enjoy and celebrate them. Some days it may take an act of the will, but whatever I feel like I will see good. I will seek to do good and be good.

The sun comes up, it’s a new day dawning
It’s time to sing your song again
Whatever may pass and whatever lies before me
Let me be singing when the evening comes

This is a daily event. It starts with appreciating each dawn, each new day. Whatever happens through the day I have an attitude of gratitude in everything, for everything. Each evening I recall and am thankful for another day.

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


I can be positive because I believe in a great, good, loving God who motivates and inspires me. He shares each day with me, giving me purpose, strength and ten thousand reasons to be grateful, appreciative and positive.

And on that day when my strength is failing
The end draws near and my time has come
Still my soul will sing Your praise unending
Ten thousand years and then forevermore

Life is sometimes grey and muddy. There are days of sadness, sickness and disappointment and even death. I will face all without fear or pretence.

And I shall enjoy, appreciate and make the most of today. I shall appreciate God, others and the blessings of my life. I shall…

Bless the Lord, Oh my soul…
