I just wanted to write a quick update and let you know we made it safely to Rybnik. We will be playing them tomorrow at 5:45 p.m. (12:45 EST) They are undefeated as well as us, so it should be a good game. I think it is on TVP Wroclaw, if you are able to get that on your computer to watch it.
We took a bus to Rybnik today after a morning practice. It took us about 4 hours to get here. We will play tomorrow and then head back after the game, so we will probably get in around midnight.
I hope everyone has a wonderful Friday and a GREAT weekend!!
Verse of the Day:
But remember the LORD your God, for it is he who gives you the ability to produce wealth, and so confirms his covenant, which he swore to your forefathers, as it is today.— Deuteronomy 8:18 (NIV)
Thoughts on Today's Verse...As we enter the month often associated in the USA with giving thanks, this reminder from Moses is an important one! We so easily forget to give thanks when things are going well. It's easy for us to whine and ask God to help us when we are in trouble, but we often feel like we "deserve" the good things that happen to us. God reminds us that what we have is simply a confirmation of his grace and his faithfulness to do what he has said. We need to remind ourselves, and each other, that the blessings we have come from his hand and not because we deserved them more than someone else.
My Utmost For His Highest:
“The weakest saint who transacts business with Jesus Christ is liberated the second he acts and God’s almighty power is available on his behalf. We come up to the truth of God, confess we are wrong, but go back again. Then we approach it again and turn back, until we finally learn we have no business going back. When we are confronted with such a word of truth from our redeeming Lord, we must move directly to transact business with Him. “Come to Me . . .” (Matthew 11:28). His word come means “to act.” Yet the last thing we want to do is come. But everyone who does come knows that, at that very moment, the supernatural power of the life of God invades him. The dominating power of the world, the flesh, and the devil is now paralyzed; not by your act, but because your act has joined you to God and tapped you in to His redemptive power.”
What are we waiting for? When we surrender completely to the Lord, He promises to strengthen us and help us through anything. The challenge to you and to me is “to come” to Him!
