It’s too late and I’m too tired, but after tomorrow I probably will be using all my writing time doing this NaNoWriMo challenge, so I better post now.
I listened to this song over and over and over again on the way to work. I blared it loudly and sang just as loudly with my hand stretched out into the crisp fall air. I paused it at one point and just shouted over and over again, as loud as I could:
For all your goodness I will keep on singingFor all YOUR goodness I will keep on singingFor ALL your goodness I will keep on singingFor all your GOODNESS I will keep on singing…Ten thousand reasons for my heart to find
I’m sure someone saw me and thought I was crazy. That’s ok. I was arguing with my soul. I was charging my soul, “Bless the LORD oh my soul! Bless the Lord!” I held my hand against my gut and said those words loudly to my LORD in defiance of my wavering soul. I was saying, “It’s because you’re good that I’ll keep on singing. Not because I’m good will I keep on singing. Or because people are good. Not because I’m bad will I stop singing. Or because people are bad. But for all YOUR goodness, because you’re so good, I will keep on singing.”
There is a good God. He is good.
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
10,000 reasons for my heart to find
Bless the lord oh my soul -Matt Redman
