I have to say I am pretty exhausted from all of the travel this past week, but thankful that we are back home for the next week and a half. I slept a few hours this morning and then went and got lunch with Anja. I then came back and did some laundry and rested for the afternoon some, and then I went with Anja and watched a basketball game. We thought our coach was playing a game tonight in a city league, but I guess he is playing next week. So, Anja and I stayed for the first half of the game and then went to Mado, a coffee and dessert place, and chilled there a little bit.
I am going to go to bed here shortly. Tomorrow we have practice at 9:30 a.m. and will have morning practice the next 2 days as well. We are also switching gyms this week, so it will be interesting to see where we will be practicing and playing the rest of the season.
Here is a link to some pictures that I took while in Antakya - scroll to the bottom of the album to look at the pictures:
I hope everyone has a great week this week!! :)
December 3rd - "Jesus Calling"
DO NOT BE SURPRISED by the fiery attacks on your mind. When you struggle to find Me and to live in My Peace, don’t let discouragement set in. You are engaged in massive warfare, spiritually speaking. The evil one abhors your closeness to Me, and his demonic underlings are determined to destroy our intimacy. When you find yourself in the think of battle, call upon My Name: “Jesus, help me!” At that instant, the battle becomes Mine; your role is simply to trust Me as I fight for you.
My Name, properly used, has unlimited Power to bless and protect. At the end of time, every knee will bow (in heaven, on earth, and under the earth), when My name is proclaimed. People who have used “Jesus” as a shoddy swear word will fall down in terror on that awesome day. But all those who have drawn near Me through trustingly uttering My Name will be filled with inexpressible and glorious Joy. This is your great hope, as you await My return.
