- VERSE OF THE WEEK:
“You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all those whose thoughts are fixed on you! Trust in the Lord always, for the Lord God is the eternal Rock.” Isaiah 26:3-4
I hope everyone has had a great day today! Happy Hump Day :). Today was a great day here. It was game day here. We had shoot around this morning, I got a good bike workout in, went to therapy, then relaxed until the game. We played Energa Torun today and beat them 94-79. The team played great today, and it showed in the outcome of the game. We actually lost to this team earlier in the season, so it was great to be able to beat them. That puts our record to 20-3 in the Polish League. It is crazy to think we only have 3 games left to finish out the regular season.
Here is the basketball game schedule from here on out:
March 12th – Monday @ Lotos Gdynia POL
March 14th – Wednedsay INEA AZS POL
March 17th - Saturday @Wisla Can- Pack POL
END OF REGULAR SEASON!
PLAYOFFS BEGIN MARCH 21st!
This evening I have been chilling. I talked to a friend on the phone, then I have been relaxing. Tomorrow we have off. I will be going in to get a good bike workout in, then taking my cast off - YAY!!! Tomorrow is the day to see how it healing and how it feels for me to move it around and stuff.
I hope everyone has a great rest of the week! The end is in sight :)
Here are some verses that stuck out to me from my reading today:
Jeremiah 22:3 – “This is what the Lord says: Be fair-minded and just. Do what is right! Help those who have been robbed: rescue them from their oppressors. Quit your evil deeds! Do not mistreat foreigners, orphans, or widows.
Jeremiah 23:23-24 – “Am I a God who is only close at hand?” says the Lord. “No, I am far away at the same time. Can anyone hide from me in a secret place? Am I not everywhere in all the heavens and earth?” says the Lord.
Jeremiah 27:4 – “This is what the Lord of Heaven’s Armies, the God of Israel, says: With my great strength and powerful arm I made the earth and all its people and every animal. I can give these things of mine to anyone I choose.”
Jeremiah 29:11 – “For I know the plans I have for you says the Lord. They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. In those days when you pray, I will listen.
Jeremiah 29:13 – “If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me.”
Jeremiah 30:11 – “For I am with you and will save you, says the Lord. I will completely destroy the nations where I have scattered you but I will not completely destroy you. I will discipline you, but with justice; I cannot let you go unpunished.”
Jeremiah 31:3b -“I have loved you, my people, with an everlasting love. With unfailing love I have drawn you to myself.”
Jeremiah 31:13b - “I will turn their mourning into joy. I will comfort them and exchange their sorrow for rejoicing.”
Jeremiah 31:33 – “But this is the new covenant I will make with the people of Israel on that day, says the Lord. I will put my instructions deep within them, and I will write them on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people.”
Jeremiah 31:35 – “It is the Lord who provides the sun to light the day and the moon and stars to light the night, and who stirs the sea into roaring waves. His name is the Lord of Heaven’s Armies…”
Jeremiah 31:37 - “Just as the heavens cannot be measured and the foundations of the earth cannot be explored, so I will not consider casting them away for the evil they have done. I, the Lord, have spoken!”
Loving the book of Jeremiah!!!
My Utmost For His Highest:
Thank you Lord for speaking to me. It isn't always easy to listen and change our ways, but I promise you that when we listen to the Holy Spirit guiding us and prodding us, we will be miserable until we surrender to Him. Are you stressed out, are you discouraged, are you emotionally tired, is it hard for you to get through the day?
Isaiah 40:28-31 - Have you not known? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He does not faint or grow weary; his understanding is unsearchable. He gives power to the faint, and to him who has no might he increases strength. Even youths shall faint and be weary,and young men shall fall exhausted; but they who wait for the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.
Let me let you in on a little secret that is not only for you but also for me - we need to SURRENDER everything! I can tell you that JESUS = JOY. When we serve Jesus, the cares of this world start to fade. The Lord has been showing me the importance of "looking up" rather than "looking out". When I look up, my focus is solely on the Lord. When I look out or lookahead, then I can easily start to get weighed down by the cares of this world.
I hope you all have a great rest of the week :) Talk to you all tomorrow!
