That’s what I saw on the lock screen of my phone among the list of subject lines of emails I’d missed earlier that day.
10,000 what!?! I could just imagine that some terrible person had hi-jacked my amazon account, picked an outrageously expensive item, and ordered 10,000. What on earth was I in for?
I could only imagine the doorbell ringing with my UPS delivery of 10,000 Apple watches, 10,000 bluetooth shower speakers, or 10,000 pairs of women’s yoga pants… I had already decided to call Amazon and straighten this out. “I didn’t order this stuff and I can’t afford to pay for it!” I would say.
All these thoughts flashed through my mind while I nervously fumbled around trying to unlock my phone to read the entire email. When I finally unlocked the screen, what I read made me smile in relief. The message expressed Amazon’s appreciation for my order of “10,000 Reasons,” a digital music file of Matt Redman’s contemporary Christian hit. I’d forgotten that I’d purchased the song the previous evening. In case you’re not familiar with the song, it has a line that speaks of the 10,000 reasons our hearts should find to bless the Lord.
