Today was another good day. The days always seem to fly by over here I feel like. We lifted weights this morning and worked out. After weightlifting was over, I came back to my apartment and chilled with my sisters for awhile. I laid down for a little bit to rest in between practices. Before I knew it, it was time to head out for practice.
Practice went well today. We did a lot of shooting and then started working on a game plan for the team we will play against this weekend. It is going to be a battle that is for sure. I am excited to have another opportunity to get back out on the court that is for sure!
This evening was pretty relaxed. We made some nachos for dinner that were really good, and then just spent the evening chilling. A friend of mine downloaded Season 1 of "Duck Dynasty", so I watched a few episodes of that. The bed is calling my name soon.
My sisters and I also got to phone chat with our strength coach from College a little bit as well as my Grandparents for a little bit. Always a lot of fun to catch up and check in with them :) Love you!!
I hope everyone has a great evening! Tomorrow we just have one practice which will be nice :)
November 20th - "Jesus Calling"
I AM PLEASED WITH YOU, MY CHILD. Allow yourself to become fully aware of My pleasure shining upon you. You don’t have to perform well in order to receive My Love. In fact, a performance focus will pull you away from Me, toward some sort of Pharisaism. This can be a subtle form of idolatry; worshiping your own good works. It can also be a source of deep discouragement when your works don’t measure up to your expectations.
Shift your focus from your performance to My radiant Presence. The Light of My Love shines on you continually, regardless of your feelings or behavior. Your responsibility is to be receptive to this unconditional Love. Thankfulness and trust are your primary receptors. Thank Me for everything; trust in Me at all times. These simple disciplines will keep you open to My loving Presence.
Ephesians 2:8-9 “God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God. Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it.”
