one thousand gifts {#1192-1213}

“For all Your goodness I will keep on singing
10,000 reasons for my heart to find.
Bless the Lord, oh my soul…”

{Matt Redman, “10,000 Reasons”}

This song never gets old.
There truly are 10,000 reasons and then some for my soul to bless the Lord.
I finished up Ann Voskamp’s Joy Dare for January this past week.
I really enjoyed using that system, but I think for February, I’ll stick with the old way I listed gifts and occasionally follow her prompts.

Since reading One Thousand Gifts, I started my own journal of grace-gifts God blesses me with every day. I will spare listing all of them here, but I will try to share some of my favorites every Monday.
