Just wanted to let you know we won our game today against Besiktas 62-49. It wasn't a pretty win, but we will take it. I actually played about 24 minutes. The coach wasn't intending to play me that much, but we had another girl get hurt. I have to say I know I was rusty playing, but I felt like I did okay considering I had been out for 6 weeks. I know with each passing day and game I will get better. My foot is still not 100%, but it is getting there.
We found out after the game, that we do not head back until 1:30 a.m. to Samsun, so it has been a long night lol. I am looking forward to getting back in my own bed and sleeping.
I will write more tomorrow! Coach has given us the next 2 days off, so it will be nice to catch up on some rest!
November 3rd - "Jesus Calling"
EVERY TIME something thwarts your plans or desires, use that as a reminder to communicate with Me. This practice has several benefits. The first is obvious: Talking with Me blesses you and strengthens our relationship. Another benefit is that disappointments, instead of dragging you down, are transformed into opportunities for good. This transformation removes the sting from difficult circumstances, making it possible to be joyful in the midst of adversity.
Begin by practicing this discipline in all the little disappointments of daily life. It is often these minor setbacks that draw you away from My Presence. When you reframe setbacks as opportunities, you find that you gain much more than you have lost. It is only after much training that you can accept major losses in this positive way. But it is possible to attain the perspective of the apostle Paul, who wrote: Compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus, I consider everything I once treasured to be as insignificant as rubbish.”
