I’d like to invite you to join me for a thankfulness challenge for 2014. Inspired by the song 10,000 Reasons, I have decided to write down over 10,000 things that I am thankful for in the course of next year.
Here’s how it works:
- Write down 29 things every day that you are thankful for (starting on January 1st).
- No repeats are allowed. Every day you must write down new things that you are thankful for. They can be things from your past or present, but they must be something you haven’t already written.
The end result will be 10,324 reasons to bless God. I hope that this challenge will help me to appreciate God’s goodness in my life more than ever. I’d love for you to join me. :)
“The Lord’s loving kindness indeed never cease,
For His compassions never fail
They are new every morning
Great is your faithfulness.”

I’d love to join you! I’ve done similar things in the past, it has permanently changed the way I see the world. I look for little things to write down, for even the “small” blessings that He sends our way. I’ll commit to ten things every day. I won’t quite make it to 10,000 by the end of the year, but I think it’s a safe commitment for a mom of two littles. :) Thanks for the inspiration!
That is awesome, Britney! Mom has deiced to write 3 a day, that way she’ll get to 1,000, and Amy Grace is joining me on the 10,000 goal. :)
This is a great idea Joy. I’ll be starting at Passover.
That’s exciting! Happy Passover (a little early)! :)
