Let Me Be Singing!

Is anyone else having a hard time with their WordPress App? I can’t open any of your blogs up, every time I try it to open them, the app crashes. :/

I keep hearing this song, and I keep loving it.

10 Thousand Reasons
Matt Redman

Bless the Lord, O my soul
O my soul
Worship His holy name
Sing like never before
O my soul
I’ll worship Your holy name

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

[Chorus]
Bless the Lord, O my soul
O my soul
Worship His holy name
Sing like never before
O my soul
I’ll worship Your holy name

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

[Chorus]
Bless the Lord, O my soul
O my soul
Worship His holy name
Sing like never before
O my soul
I’ll worship Your holy name

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

[Chorus x2]
Bless the Lord, O my soul
O my soul
Worship His holy name
Sing like never before
O my soul
I’ll worship Your holy name

Jesus, I’ll worship Your holy name
Lord, I’ll worship Your holy name

Sing like never before
O my soul
I’ll worship Your holy name
Jesus, I’ll worship Your holy name
I’ll worship Your holy name

I especially love when it says:

Whatever may pass, and whatever lies before me
Let me be singing when the evening comes

So many times in life we get stuff thrown at us that feels like it might destroy us. We aren’t sure how The Lord expects us to get through it. We don’t understand why He’s “allowing” us to suffer. It’s hard to keep our focus on Him when these things happen. And so that line really hits home for me. WHATEVER comes my way, WHATEVER’S down the bend, I want to be SINGING when the evening comes. I don’t want to be found ill equipped or unready for battle. I don’t want to be found with my tools laying at my side. I want to be found singing His glorious praises, spiritual tools in hand!

This life is temporary, friends. The pain will not last forever, it can’t. Because in Heaven there is no pain. There is such an amazing future for the children of God. This earthly life is not the end of your story.

Keep singing His praises! You’re not singing alone, we are all singing with you. Let Heaven hear the choir of His children singing loud for all to hear!

– Sarah

    • Ugh..well at least I’m not alone. But I really would like to be able to read the blogs without the hassle of weeding through the normal website on the ipad. Maybe if we uninstall and reinstall it it will work? I think I will try it!
