Honestly, it is hard to believe that March is almost a third of the way done...crazy!! Also, I found out today it is National Women's Day today. To be honest, I never really knew that existed before ha.
Just got done skyping with my sisters and parents. I know my parents are glad to have them back in Lynchburg again. Today was a busy day for me. I woke up early and lifted with the team. I then came back to the apartment and worked on school work for a couple of hours. I laid down for about 30 minutes and then headed out to practice at 4:00 p.m.
This evening, I have been doing more school work - reading, watching lectures, and writing. I am trying to get my school work done before we head out on Thursday. I fount out today we have a birthday party to go to tomorrow night and then we head out Thursday morning to go to Botas. We will spend the night there and then head out the next day to Gazientep where we will play in the Turkish Cup on Saturday evening.
Well, bed for me here in a little bit. Another day has come and gone in Turkey.
Please continue to pray for Mrs. Gribbin (diagnosed with lymphoma). She could definitely use your prayers right now!!!
The LORD will keep you from all harm - he will watch over your life; the LORD will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.— Psalm 121:7-8 (NIV)
Thoughts on Today's Verse...One of my hardest challenges as a parent is knowing that I can't ultimately protect my children from some hurts and heartbreaks. Some of their pain is necessary to help them mature and grow. Some of it is just the agonizing result of living in a fallen world. But, we can be fully confident that if we share the Lord with them, if they give their lives to his will, nothing can steal them from his ultimate victory, care, and reunion with us and with him. Knowing how we love our children, imagine how much the Father loves us and longs to bring us to that place of safety in his house! Until we get home, isn't it comforting to know that he is watching over us and those we love, now and forevermore?
My Utmost For His Highest:
When people really see themselves as the Lord sees them, it is not the terribly offensive sins of the flesh that shock them, but the awful nature of the pride of their own hearts opposing Jesus Christ. When they see themselves in the light of the Lord, the shame, horror, and desperate conviction hit home for them.
If you are faced with the question of whether or not to surrender, make a determination to go on through the crisis, surrendering all that you have and all that you are to Him. And God will then equip you to do all that He requires of you.
Our Daily Bread:
What may seem insignificant,
Mundane, routine, or small
Is often used by God to show
His power over all. —Sper
God uses small things to accomplish great things for His glory.
