Great is Thy Faithfulness

 I have a sign in my house that says “Blessings all mine with ten thousand beside.”  It’s the ten thousand.  I’d like to share the ten thousand blessings at Dakota Christian but I’ll just share a few:

·A teacher tells students to look at how their hands can form a “b” and a “d”.  She says “God gave us tools right on our hands to help us remember the difference.”  A fleeting moment. A casual comment like this brings the students to be more familiar with the awesome God we have, and it helps form the Christian worldview perspective. 

·The Q107 Quiz Bowl team of Anna DeHaan, Hayden Hubers, and Tate Timmermans won their first match against Howard.  It was just 20 minutes out of their day.  The matches are recorded, played on the radio.  “Does anyone besides my grandma listen to these radio spots?” Just a blip of time and experience…after all it’s not a basketball game or advancing to the state football championship.  Yeah, it’s a little thing, but to the team, the win was huge, and sets the tone for future matches 

·A student stops in to ask how they can raise their GPA.  After “not trying very hard” in the past, the student sees the future looming large and wants to be prepared.  A few tweaks here and there in student habits, motivation, and dedication, the student begins to see the GPA edging upward, the future plans becoming achievable.  Nothing huge, not a major change to daily habits, but suddenly goals can become reality.

What’s on your “ten thousand” list?
