THANK YOU GOD FOR SAVING ME by CHRIS TOMLIN & PHIL WICKHAM
What can I give to you
What can I offer to the king
For all the love you’ve shown
For all your mercy over me

I called your name, you heard my cry
Out of the grave, and into life
My heart is yours, my soul is free
Thank you God for saving me
Thank you God for saving me

The rock of salvation
My hope is built on nothing less
Morning by morning
How great is your faithfulness

I called your name, you heard my cry
Out of the grave, and into life
My heart is yours, my soul is free
Thank you God for saving me
Thank you God for saving me

You gave your life upon the cross
You suffered once for all
You made a way
Jesus in victory you rose
You made us all your own
Now we are saved

You gave your life upon the cross
You suffered once for all
You made a way
Jesus in victory you rose
You made us all your own
Now we are saved

Thank you God for saving me
Thank you God
Thank you God for saving me
Thank you for the cross
Thank you God for saving me

I called your name, you heard my cry
Out of the grave, and into life
My heart is yours, my soul is free
Thank you God for saving me
Thank you God for saving me

SoberDay 625… It’s Been Hard, But I’ve Made It!!!

It would be easy to say that the last couple of months have been all a bit of a mess, in fact it would be a bit of an understatement, I would say I have been a complete failure, I’ve certainly felt that way, if I’m honest I have felt that way for most of that time.

Jeremiah 29:11-12
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you.

But the truth is, I’m still living by the grace and strength I have been granted and each day I am still sober is never a failure, no matter what other trials I face, I have resisted any temptation to return to who I was, despite all the voices of deception that echoed around my my mind.

Jeremiah 17:7-8
But blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD whose confidence is in him. He will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.”

So today I put all that troubles me at the foot of the cross and give thanks for the strength that has seen me through to today, SoberDay 625 and pray for the strength and grace to keep this journey going.

2 Corinthians 4:16-18
Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.

400 SoberDays

I’m not sure how I’ve made but I have, 400 SoberDays and I’m still counting, even after this afternoon!!!!!

The two karate classes this afternoon were slightly on the insane side, Steve, my help on Friday’s was away so I was in my own, firstly with 20 odd four to six years olds, oh my, two brothers were not even the slightest bit interested in doing anything but cause trouble, eventually their Mother pulled them out and took them home, I kept smiling and the witty banter going, only 45 minutes, although probably the longest of my life!!!!

Then the second class another twenty kids, this time a bit older, seven to thirteen, a little tamer and not so stressful, thankfully!

The things I do for the love of karate!

Oh well, when I left the sports centre a little flustered, I stuck my earphones in and the following two songs played to bring my level of sanity close to somewhere approaching normal!

I called Your name
You heard my cry
Out of the grave
And into life
My heart is Yours
My soul is free
Thank You God for saving me

I will follow
I will follow
Til the stars fall down
til the sun burns out
I will follow
I will follow
til Gabriels horn does sound
