I have no idea what Matt Redman was thinking when he sat down to sing this song. But i am sure it must have been something very strong, very powerful.
Since yesterday i can't stop meditating on the words of this song. Bless the Lord Oh My Soul.......Worship His Holy Name, Sing like never Before Oh My soul. I worship your Holy Name.
I am amazed at how Matt was astounded at all the beauty around him, like the sun coming up bringing a new day and for that, a reason to sing a new a song to God again..... and trusting God for whatever may pass or whatever lies ahead but just praying that a new song will be sung when the evening comes.
10,000 reasons for my heart to find so that i could sing a new song!!! I know i have more than 10 thousand reasons for my heart to sing. He is amazing, loving and compassionate. he is slow to anger (not that i don't deserve the full weight of it), the beauty around me is breath taking, the gifts from Him are overwhelming; of Himself, of Life, My beautiful son, the people in my life..... i could go on and on (keeping in mind that it's not because i deserve them but they are freely given).
How i pray that each day i will find a reason out of the many in my heart, that my soul will sing a new song each day to Yahweh.
Oh Bless the Lord oh My Soul.
