I had film today at 1:30 p.m. and then we practiced from 2:30 p.m. to about 4:00 p.m. After practice, my sisters and I came back home and relaxed until heading out to dinner with the General Manager and Yildiz (kind of like a director of operations). My sisters had not tasted kebabs since coming to Adana, so that is what was on the menu for dinner. I personally am not a big fan of them, and it turned out Mol and Mor were not either ha but it was still a good time. My sisters were able to try some other Turkish dishes that they had not tried previously.
Tonight I plan on relaxing and then it is GAME time tomorrow :)!! We play against Kayseri at 2:00 p.m. I will keep you posted on how we do!!
It is not good to have zeal without knowledge, nor to be hasty and miss the way.— Proverbs 19:2 (NIV)
Thoughts on Today's Verse...Maybe one of the most important things we can do to grow in spiritual maturity is to find the right things to get passionate about. We can get riled up about some of the most inconsequential issues. We can get wildly passionate about everything from sports to chocolate pie. But zeal, passion for an issue, must be anchored to spiritual wisdom and understanding. We can get worked up over something and completely miss the will of the Lord because we were blinded by our own passions. While I want zealous people around me, I want them to be zealous for God's things and for Kingdom issues.
My Utmost For His Highest:
Never consider whether or not you are of use— but always consider that “you are not your own” (1 Corinthians 6:19). You are His.
Our Daily Bread:
As believers, we have something to look forward to that is even more exciting than the anticipation of budding flowers and lots of sunshine after a long winter. God has made many promises in His Word, and each one has been or will be fulfilled. But the certainty that Christ will return is one of the greatest promises of all. “For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. . . . Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air,” and we’ll be with Him forever (1 Thess. 4:16-17).
Although no one can know the exact day, we have God’s promise that Jesus will come back (Acts 1:7-11). As we celebrate the spring and coming Easter season, let’s encourage each other in anticipation of that day!
He is coming! Oh, the rapture
To behold His lovely face,
And to tell Him how I love Him,
Who has saved me by His grace. —Dimmock
Christ is coming—perhaps today!
