“10,000 Reasons”


Today I woke up thinking these words, “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.”

It’s been another hard week for us as we mourn the death of Grandma Marie Ryan.  She was a big part of our lives and words can not express how greatly we will miss her.  I am thankful for the time we were able to share with her in this life, and I am so thankful that I know and believe, “God’s name is Great and His heart is kind. For all His goodness I will keep on singing, Ten Thousand reasons for my heart to find.” He is the blessed controller of all things. “Sing like never before, O my soul, I’ll worship Your holy name.”

The next few days will be very hard as we attend Grandma’s viewing and funeral but it just reminds us once again, this world is not our home, we are just passing through, patiently awaiting our real home, heaven and eternity with Jesus. “Still my soul will sing Your praise unending, Ten thousand years and then forevermore. I’ll worship your holy name, Jesus I’ll worship  your holy name.”

  1. I do like that song – it soars in all the right places. Glad you have the song to offer some comfort. The best is yet to come, but it still sucks to be left behind sometimes and to have someone no longer in your life. Hope it gets easier soon.

    • It’s a great song, isn’t it!? We’ve lost 5 close relatives in less then a year – death seem to be harder on the living. Thankfully, we can grieve with joy knowing that they are home safely in the arms of Jesus.
