Today was an "off day" here. I was able to sleep in a little bit and then headed to brunch with a couple of my teammates at 11:00 a.m. I had some pita bread with cheese that was baked along withs some olives. It was a good start to today. The weather was beautiful today - it was 86 degrees outside which was awesome. I should have gone swimming today huh?
I went to the store this afternoon and got some things for my apartment and then I have just been chilling :)!! I got to meet up with a former teammate of mine from my first year in Turkey tonight - so fun!!!
God has been so good :)
From "Jesus Calling" by Sarah Young:
“Accept each day exactly as it comes to you. By that, I mean not only the circumstances of your day but also the condition of your body. Your assignment is to trust Me absolutely, resting in My sovereignty and faithfulness.
On some days, your circumstances and your physical condition feel out of balance: The demands on you seem far greater than your strength. Days like that present a choice between the two alternatives---giving up or relying on Me. Even if you wrongly choose the first alternative, I will not reject you. You can turn to Me at any point, and I will help you crawl out of the mire of discouragement. I will infuse My strength into you moment by moment, giving you all that you need for this day. Trust Me, by relying on My empowering Presence.”
Verses: Psalm 42:5; 2 Corinthians 13:4; Jeremiah 31:25
I loved this!!
I get my physical tomorrow morning and then I will practice tomorrow night with the team for the first time.
Have a great rest of your Sunday!!!
