The completion of today's game marks the half-way point of the season. We have now completed 11 games and have 11 more to go. Now begins the point where we play everyone we played the first half of the season again. All of the other teams have brought in at least one or two new players, but we have kept our same team intact so far.
Saturday we play against Tarsus. They brought in two new players, so it will be a battle. We finished in the top 8 for the first half of the season, so that means we will be playing in the Turkish cup in March before the playoffs start.
Tomorrow we hit the practice floor again! Practice Thursday and Friday and then Saturday we play Tarsus. I will keep you all posted on how it goes.
P.S. Congrats to Jesse Stephens and Coach Stephens (assistant coach at Liberty University Women's Basketball) on the birth of their son! He is a cutie :) Matthew David Stephens was born yesterday and weighs 9 lbs and 6 oz.
But you are a shield around me, O LORD; you bestow glory on me and lift up my head.— Psalm 3:3 (NIV)
Thoughts on Today's Verse...My dad would never let me walk slouched over with my head down. "Remember son, you are a Ware. That's nothing to be ashamed of. Even on your worst day you are still my son and a child of God!" God is our protector and our proud Father. He gives us glory because he loves us. Because he is our Father who gives us such gracious gifts, we don't walk with our head bowed low and our spirits slumped over. He gives us ultimate victory! Even on those dark days when victory is hard to find, we are still God's children. Our Father paints the sunsets and holds the stars in their orbits. He guarantees our future. How can we walk dejectedly when we remember this?
My Utmost For His HIghest:
All our promises and resolutions end in denial because we have no power to accomplish them. When we come to the end of ourselves, not just mentally but completely, we are able to “receive the Holy Spirit.” “Receive the Holy Spirit “— the idea is that of invasion. There is now only One who directs the course of your life, the Lord Jesus Christ.
Our Daily Bread:
If you wonder why God isn’t anxious when you are, it’s because He has everything under control. He knows that Jesus, the Lion of Judah, will triumph.
When fear and worry test your faith
And anxious thoughts assail,
Remember God is in control
And He will never fail. —Sper
Because God is in control, we have nothing to fear.
