Today was a pretty busy day, but fun day. We had lifting in the morning and then I met up with a friend I met my first year in Turkey in Ankara. My sisters and I had lunch with her and chilled for a little bit, and then it was time to head to practice. We had an earlier practice today, so after practice it was nice to be able to chill some and hang out at the house.
This evening I have spent some time catching up with some friends by phone or on skype. Amazing how time can go by so fast when doing that. Always a lot of fun that is for sure.
Tomorrow I will sleep in, and then probably head into town a little bit with my sisters. We practice early again tomorrow and then have a team dinner after practice.
I will post the link tomorrow where you can watch our game live on Saturday :)!! I hope you all have a great day tomorrow and a wonderful weekend :)
November 15th - "Jesus Calling"
APPROACH PROBLEMS with a light touch. When your mind moves toward a problem area, you tend to focus on that situation so intensely that you lose sight of Me. You pit yourself against the difficulty as if you had to conquer it immediately. Your mind gears up for battle, and your body becomes tense and anxious. Unless you achieve total victory, you feel defeated.
There is a better way. When a problem starts to overshadow your thoughts, bring this matter to Me. Talk with Me about it and look at it in the Light of My Presence. This puts some much-needed space between you and your concern, enabling you to see from My perspective. You will be surprised at the results. Sometimes you may even laugh at yourself for being so serious about something to insignificant.
You will always face trouble in this life. But more importantly, you will always have Me with you, helping you to handle whatever you encounter. Approach problems with a light touch by viewing them in My reviewing Light.
John 16:33 – “I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.”
