How are you all doing? It is crazy that the days are passing so fast. I am thankful, but also want to cherish each day that the Lord gives us. Today we had two practices. This morning the post players and guards were split up. I was able to take a nice nap this afternoon which was great. This evening practice went for about 2 hours.
For dinner I heated up some leftover steak that I had fixed. I have just been relaxing the rest of this evening. Tomorrow we only have one practice which will be nice, and then we will play Fenerbahce on Wednesday.
On a side note, I wanted to let you all know that we no longer play next Wednesday. Also, our game this Saturday got moved to Sunday. For some reason the schedule on our team's website must be wrong. I made the change under "Basketball Schedule". To finish out until Christmas break here are the games:
December 7th - @ HOME against Fenerbance - this game is on TV Spor!
December 11th - @ Poznan
December 17th - @ HOME against Wisla
December 21st - @ HOME against KS Siemens
December 22nd - FLY HOME!
Verse of the Day:
Among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or of any kind of impurity, or of greed, because these are improper for God's holy people.
— Ephesians 5:3
My Utmost For His Highest:
Paul said, “I beseech you . . . that you present your bodies a living sacrifice . . .” (Romans 12:1). What I must decide is whether or not I will agree with my Lord and Master that my body will indeed be His temple. Once I agree, all the rules, regulations, and requirements of the law concerning the body are summed up for me in this revealed truth-my body is “the temple of the Holy Spirit.”
How are we living out our lives on a daily basis? Who am I living for? Who are you living for? We need to strive to live our lives to the fullest for the Lord! I was listening to a message today by Dr. David Jeremiah on the life of Abraham. Abraham learned what it truly meant to sacrifice. He was asked to sacrifice his son Isaac to the Lord, and so he obeyed and went up to Mt. Moriah to sacrifice him, but then an angel of the Lord appeared and told him to not kill Isaac. Jesus was our ultimate sacrifice for us on the cross. Praise the Lord!! What a privilege we have to serve Him! When Jesus asks us to give us something we cherish are we willing?
