Our game was at 2:00 p.m. against Besiktas. The first time we played them, we lost by over ten, but this time, we were able to pull out a WIN!!! :) We were down by 14 at half-time and came back and won 82-77!! It was a great game for sure. We are now in 5th place as a result of the win.
After the game, I came back to the apartment with my sisters and we decided to relax and make dinner at home. The menu for the evening was chicken and cheese quesadillas along with a mixed vegetable medley that we baked. The mixed veggies included fresh squash, onions, mushrooms, and peppers.
My sisters crashed at about 8:30 p.m. and were out for a couple of hours. Moriah woke back up for a little bit, but is now back to bed.
Coach gave us Sunday and Monday off which is super nice. Tomorrow I am going to church with my sisters, and then we are heading to Tarsus to get a tour of the city :).
Well, I am off to bed!! Busy and fun filled day ahead tomorrow.
Come, let us sing for joy to the LORD; let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation.— Psalm 95:1 (NIV)
Thoughts on Today's Verse...Having a loving God who is Eternal, a Rock of stability in a "topsy-turvy" world, is really something to shout about. So much of what we get excited about in our world today is just a fleeting victory, a vicarious sporting thrill, or personality worship. But in God, we have something to truly sing about with joy. He has known us since our conception, he has loved us from before the foundation of the world, he has sent his Son to save us, and he will bring us home to himself! No quiet song will do today. Let's sing with joy and shout out loud to the LORD!
My Utmost For His Highest:
We say, “It’s easy to say, ’Trust in the Lord,’ but a person has to live; and besides, Jesus has nothing with which to draw water— no means to be able to give us these things.” And beware of exhibiting religious deceit by saying, “Oh, I have no misgivings about Jesus, only misgivings about myself.” If we are honest, we will admit that we never have misgivings or doubts about ourselves, because we know exactly what we are capable or incapable of doing. But we do have misgivings about Jesus. And our pride is hurt even at the thought that He can do what we can’t.
Our Daily Bread:
When life is at its lowest ebb, we are not without hope because of the wonderful grace of God.
When trouble seeks to rob your very breath,
When tragedy hits hard and steals your days,
Recall that Christ endured the sting of death;
He gives us hope, and merits all our praise. —Gustafson
No one is hopeless whose hope is in God.
