We’ve been singing 10,000 Reasons a lot recently. It has been a great song to keep in mind as we celebrate Thanksgiving today, especially in the second verse where it recounts just a few things about God, Himself, that we can be grateful for and yet how many more things we can find a reason to be thankful.

You’re rich in love and You’re slow to anger
Your name is great and Your heart is kind
For all of Your goodness I will keep on singing
10,000 reasons for my heart to find

I know it seems a bit cliche, but today before you dive into your feast and before you ask the Lord to bless the rich meal, why not think of one thing that you can be really thankful for. 10,000 is a lot to list out but coming up with just a handful can be easy.

I’m thankful for a merciful God that loves me even through all my mistakes, and for the many gifts he has given me.
I’m thankful for being blessed with a beautiful family and precious friends that mean just as much to me.
I’m thankful that I live in a place where I can unashamedly represent my God everyday.

Happy Thanksgiving!
