Thank you for posting that Ann.
It is so encouraging to read. Why do we forget it so quickly after?

Today's reading from Ellel Ministries:

The Divine Cheque Book

I was recently in Northern Ireland and talking to my friend Jim. He and his wife Irene now manage the Ellel Ministries Centre at Ballyclare. Jim was explaining to me how he saw God`s promises of wholeness and freedom as being like a cheque book which Jesus has given to each one of us. This divine cheque book contains countless promises, all fully signed by Jesus. However, as with many business cheques, two signatures are required in order to be able to cash these particular divine cheques and so receive the precious payments. Each cheque needs the addition of our own signature, to complete the process, but many Christians fail to put their own name to all the amazing promises of restoration from God.

Here are some of the promises that were spoken out through the prophet Isaiah (Isaiah 61) and which later became a resounding “Yes” through Jesus:

1. God has made an everlasting covenant with you.

2. God has defeated the enemy who is against you.

3. God has released you from those things that have a hold on you.

4. God has provided His comfort for you when you are in sorrow.

5. God has healed your broken-heart.

6. God has ended your shame and disgrace.

7. God has given you a joy that will last forever.

8. God has saved you from all that would harm you.

Have you and I signed our names on each of these cheques? Does each one have our agreement or “Amen”? There is an endless supply of promises but each requires our clear response in order for us to personally receive the full value of the payment that Jesus has made through the Cross.

Prayer: Father God, Your promises to mankind were all endorsed, affirmed and distributed at the Cross. Please show me how to put my name to each of Your divine cheques, so that I may appropriate every promise You have made for my wholeness and freedom, through Jesus Christ, Amen.

God will make a way by Don Moen.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1zo3fJYtS-o

God will make a way
Where there seems to be no way
He works in ways we cannot see
He will make a way for me
He will be my guide
Hold me closely to His side
With love and strength
For each new day
He will make a way
He will make a way
By a roadway in the wilderness
He'll lead me
And rivers in the desert will I see
Heaven and earth will fade
But His Word will still remain
He will do something new today
Hash

A sign on the cross at Burrswood:

NOT A HOPELESS END

I've got loads, but there are a couple that stand out for me in particular...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N-k57oBHch0

Looking in the sky whoever could deny Your Glory?
Gazing into space how small the human race appears
Seeing You in all Your majesty I wonder how it could be
That You delight in me.

Lord You are an amazing God
Lord You are an amazing God
Lord You are an amazing God
And I love You, I love You.

Lord of everything, no other god or king is like You
Powerful and strong, yet tender is Your song to me
Knowing the extent of all my sin, however could you be pleased
To pour Your love on me?

You light up the heavens with just one word
You measure the mountains in Your hand
Yet You treasure the broken and make them whole
You crown us with Your love

And...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jBZ6foSwNB0

Before the throne of God above
I have a strong and perfect plea.
A great High Priest whose Name is Love
Who ever lives and pleads for me.
My name is graven on His hands,
My name is written on His heart.
I know that while in heaven He stands
No tongue can bid me thence depart.

When Satan tempts me to despair
And tells me of my guilt within,
Upward I look and see Him there
Who made an end of all my sin.
Because the sinless Savior died
My sinful soul is counted free.
For God the just is satisfied
To look on Him and pardon me.

Behold Him there the risen Lamb,
My perfect spotless righteousness,
The great unchangeable I am,
The King of Glory and of Grace,
One with Himself I cannot die.
My soul is purchased by His blood,
My life is hid with Christ on high,
With Christ my Savior and my God!

We had this song on Sunday:

IN YOUR OWN SKIN

You know you mean the world to me With all your colours and mysteries
Don’t you know that you’re the reason why
I threw the sun into the sky
I can’t stand to watch you fall, when you were made to stand up tall
I know that you’ve been losing sight so let me be your eyes tonight

When there’s no one else left to call
When there’s no one else left to listen
I will be waiting for you

You’ll be safe in these arms
You’ll be at home in these arms
And it wont be long till you find your song
You find your stride you’ll be brimming with pride
And I promise you a new day will begin
You’ll be comfortable in your skin

You’ve been failed you’ve been ignored
They’ve thrown your case right over board
On your own losing the fight
Just let me be your fists tonight
Round and round the repetition
Breaks your coping mechanisms
I don’t want to see you lose your voice for something that was not your choice

You’ll be safe in these arms
You’ll be at home in these arms
And it wont be long till you find your song
You find your stride you’ll be brimming with pride
And I promise you a new day will begin
You’ll be comfortable in your skin

And it’s ok for you to feel this way
Its ok I will not walk away
Because I promise you
A new day will begin
You’ll be comfortable
In your own skin.

We had this hymn at church tonight, and it seemed so appropriate:

Don't assume that God's dismissed you from his mind,
Don't assume that God's forgotten to be kind;
For no matter what you do, his love still follows you;
Don't think that you have left him far behind.

Chorus
For his love remains the same,
He knows you by your name,
Don't think because you failed him he despairs;
For he gives to those who ask
His grace for every task,
God plans for you in love for he still cares.

2.
Don't assume that God will plan for you no more,
Don't assume that there's no future to explore;
For your life he'll re-design, the pattern be divine;
Don't think that your repentance he'll ignore.

3.
Don't assume you cannot give what he'll demand,
Don't assume that God condemns you out of hand;
For he gives to those who ask his grace for every task;
Don't think that God will fail to understand.

Just got Becky Green's new album which is amazing.

Favourite song of the moment is 'Trust you now', goes a bit like this:

'Spinning round and round
im holding on so tight
holding on

Round and round i go
it's pulling me apart here
here

And i trust you now
For our every need
our every need
and i need you now more than ever'
