Sorry, I thought I posted this blog yesterday, but I guess I forgot to hit submit.
SO we came out on the short end of the game today. It was a close game at half time, but we ended up losing the game 77-61. It was a rough game throughout the entire game. We have tomorrow off, and hopefully we can bounce back!
After the game I went and got dinner with my sisters and Tanja. Then this evening my sisters, Tanja, and Andja and I hung out for a few hours at my apartment. We had cookies and ice cream to round out the night - so FUN!!!
I will try to write more tomorrow.
THERE IS NO CONDEMNATION for those who are in Me. The law of the Spirit of Life has set you free from the law of sin and death. Not many Christians know how to live in this radical freedom, which is their birthright. I died to set you free; live freely in Me!
To walk along the path of freedom, you must keep your mind firmly fixed on Me. Many voices proclaim: “This is the way for you to go,” but only My voice tells you the true way. If you follow the way of the world with all its glitter and glamour, you will descend deeper and deeper into an abyss. Christian voices also can lead you astray: “Do this!” “Don’t do that!” “Pray this way!” “Don’t pray that way!” If you listen to all those voices, you will become increasingly confused.
Be content to be a simple sheep, listening for My voice and following Me. I will lead you into restful green pastures and guide you along paths of righteousness.
Psalm 23:1-3 - "The Lord is my shepherd; I have all that I need. He lets me rest in green meadows; he leads me beside peaceful streams. He renews my strength. He guides me along right paths, bringing honor to his name."
Then it was time to head to the grocery store, so we went to Metro and got stocked up on some meat and a few other items. We came home and made some veggie pasta. We put mushroom, peppers, tomato, and squash in the pasta with a cream sauce - it turned out really good!!
Here is a pic below of the pasta:
This evening I got to catch up with some people on skype which was a lot of FUN!! I always enjoy that :)
Well it is bed for me. We practice tomorrow afternoon, so it is back to practice we go.
November 18th - "Jesus Calling"
COME TO ME, and res in My Peace. My Face is shining upon you, in rays of Peace transcending understanding. Instead of trying to figure things out yourself you can relax in the Presence of the One who knows everything. As you lean on Me in trusting dependence, you feel peaceful and complete. This is how I designed you to live: in close communion with Me.
When you are around other people, you tend to cater to their expectations---real or imagined. You feel enslaved to pleasing them, and your awareness of My Presence grows dim. Your efforts to win their approval eventually exhaust you. You offer these people dry crumbs rather than the living water of My Spirit flowing through you. This is not My way for you! Stay in touch with Me, even during your busiest moments. Let My Spirit give you words of grace as you live in the Light of My Peace.
Philippians 4:6-7 - Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.
