Methodist Hymn 102: NOW THANK WE ALL OUR GOD
1. Now thank we all our God,
with heart and hands and voices,
who wondrous things has done,
in whom this world rejoices;
who from our mothers’ arms
has blessed us on our way
with countless gifts of love,
and still is ours today.
2. O may this bounteous God
through all our life be near us,
with ever joyful hearts
and blessed peace to cheer us;
and keep us still in grace,
and guide us when perplexed;
and free us from all ills,
in this world and the next.
3. All praise and thanks to God
the Father now be given;
the Son, and him who reigns
with them in highest heaven;
the one eternal God,
whom earth and heaven adore;
for thus it was, is now,
and shall be evermore.
These are the songs on my lips today. My sleepless nights brooding over my results are over by God’s grace.
That was one of the big NO. 1 Prayer Point of the year answered. Following on 19th June 2013 blog, God has answered my prayers….yea I got a BIG PASS, and I am now EXAM QUALIFIED Chartered Accountant.
This was my thank you message I drafted on 20th June 2013. CELEBRATING GOD’S GOODNESS – I passed TPE (my last ICAS paper)
All thanks be to our God, who is able to do exceedingly, abundantly more than we ask for.
Philippians 1:6 Our God is able to bring to good completion, that which He started in our life
Indeed God’s word is true….For this I am confident of I will see the Lord’s goodness in the land of the living (Psalm 27:13)
For most of you, you have seen my struggles, my tears but the GOOD NEWS is MY GOD has brought it all to good completion. He has put a big smile on my face today.
I have passed my final TPE exam, which means by God’s grace am done with ICAS exams today.
By way of celebration, I have some nibbles in front of the first aid room/stationery room on the 7th Floor in the Birmingham office, feel free to come over and celebrate the Lord’s goodness with me.
Thanks to you all for all the great role you played along this journey.

Three other things I want to do before the end of the year (by the Help of God)
- Draw closer and closer to God, meditate on His word day and night and seek to do His will, and He would make my way prosperous (Joshua 1:8 paraphrased)
Joshua 1:8 in full “This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success”
- Better my French language skills (better listening, reading and speaking of French and working on my grammar)
- Pass my theory & practical driving test before 31st December 2013
