Promise and Command

At church each of get a card with a verse each for a Command for the Year and a Promise.
Although they seem quite random, I prayed about it before picking up my card and these are the verses I got.
Promise:
Mark 9:23
Jesus said to him, "If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes."
Command
Hebrews 4:16
Let us therefore draw near with boldness to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy, and may find grace for help in time of need.
I pray that I will hold on to that promise and fulfil that command this year and also for the rest of my life.
If you're reading this do say a short quiet prayer for me! God Bless!

All at Church

Ok so we all went to sleep at various times hoping to get up and go to church on New Year morning at 9 AM. Now that's easier said than done. And to make things worse, I got up at 8 AM and then woke up my Mom. A woke up sleepily and L had a backache. My dad was still dozing. Oops. Some guests dropped in and soon my dad had to wake up. Joel and Luke slowly stirred out of bed and were moody. S and J called up and that kinda picked up the tempo. After queueing into the shower and gulping down our breakfast with the kids having their share we all trudged down and actually made it to church. We reached a little late, but were there for the whole sermon and communion. Looking back - i still cant figure out how we managed it!
