Do not judge and you will not be judged.
Forgive and you will be forgiven.
Give and it will be given to you.
Luke 6: 37-38

Have you been carolling this year? You have still got time!

O Come, All Ye Faithful is one of my favorite carols. What's yours? 
Attributed to John Francis Wade(ca. 1711-1786)
O come, all ye faithful,
Joyful and triumphant,
O come ye,
O come ye to Bethlehem;
Come and behold Him
Born the King of angels;
O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him,
Christ, the Lord.
Sing, choirs of angels,
Sing in exultation,
Sing, all ye citizens
of heaven above;
Glory to God,
Glory in the highest;
O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him,
Christ, the Lord.
Yea, Lord, we greet Thee,
Born this happy morning,
Jesus, to Thee be
all glory given;
Son of the Father,
Now in flesh appearing;
O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him,
Christ, the Lord.

Hang on to God's promises!

Brian and Gina Walden always wanted to have a family. Their first son was easy, their second son Ethan would wake up and scream. Mum says: I would tickle him, bring his toys and he wouldn't respond. As he got older, his parents worried. He would just cry and bit himself until he bled. Their doctor told them he had autism. 

They began to care for him but the stress strained their marriage. One night they realised they were up against something else and that this fight was a spiritual battle as much as a physical
Dad: I started to get up earlier and we would pray. 
Soon after that, they found an autism specialist Ginelle who was a Christian too: 'Prayer was as important as therapy'  and she would pray with them daily...
This is such an encouraging story. Our God loves us and He is there for us in every moment of our daily walk.

A prayer for today: Father, you hold us in our hands, you know our deepest thoughts and worries. 
We ask you to pour your healing on our little ones, their parents, grand-parents, carers, nurses, doctors and hospital staff. 
Guide them and help them keeping on looking after their patients, strengthten them, for your glory. 
In Jesus' name, our Saviour and Redeemer, amen.
Have a blessed day. N.
