During worship we sang Bless the Lord by Matt Redman. I've sung it before, but last night it really hit me . . . 10,000 reasons for my heart to find.
Could I come up with 10,000 things?? Could my heart really do that?? How has the Lord blessed me? How is He still blessing me?
Really, I have been focusing so much on the negative & the difficult challenges rather that focusing on Him & His goodness. I need to take more time each day to mediate on Him & what He has done & is still doing. He does command us in Phillipians 4:8-10 to think about what is excellent & praiseworthy, among other things.
8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. 9 Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice.And the God of peace will be with you.
So, keep an eye out. I've started, but want to document it outside of the blog (scrapbooking).
