10,000 Reasons Project: Take 30 Seconds

The 10,000 Reasons Project has only been going on for a couple days, and we’ve already gotten some truly inspiring lists from our community members!  I love seeing everyone take a few moments from their day to think about the things they’re thankful for and lift them up in praise.

Ten thousand is a daunting number, but I know we can reach it!  We all have so much to be grateful for.  We have been blessed in so many ways.  If you need a little inspiration, just check out the first post to see our friends’ reasons to love God.

This morning, I’m thankful for:

  • my sister’s opportunity to study in France
  • time to read!
  • hot showers
  • the Oregon coast
  • how God healed David E.
  • Life Groups!
  • my spiritual family – the people God placed in my life for mutual support and joy

There – and that only took a few seconds!  If we all took 30 seconds from our day and thought of seven reasons to praise God, how long would it take to get to 10,000?  Or, more importantly, how long after that could we keep going?  After all, our God is the infinite God of the universe!  He loves us and He has great plans for us!  What can you offer up to Him in praise during your 30 seconds?

  • I am in awe of God’s great love for me this morning. I’m so thankful for the cross. Jesus has 10,000 ways to get my focus back on him and this song is one of the ways he did this today: http://worshiptogether.com/songs/songdetail.aspx?iid=577430
