Shalom from Israel! This blog entry finds a me on a tour of the Holy Land. Since my body clock is still in shock, it was suggested we catch the sunrise over the Sea of Galilee. So my day began with this song on my lips- 10,000 Reasons
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,
Ten thousand reasond for my heart to find.
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.
This song confirmed for me who I was up so early to worship and why. We need no other reason than God is holy and worthy of our praise. As I watched the birds take flight in the cool morning air and the first rays of sunlight color the sky I thought how privelidged I am to know and love the Lord. What graces your morning thoughts? Do you rise thankful for a new day awaiting new blessings? Though circumstances may differ and some days are hard, our attitude is to be one of praise. Will you give a word of praise and thanks as you begin your day? When I’m home I will post my sunrise over Galilee photo for you to see too!
