One week until home :) YAY!!!
Today we had two practices and both of them went great :). This afternoon I took a short nap and then did some reading.
Tomorrow we have one practice. I plan on doing some baking and maybe some cooking for lunch. Tonight I had a bowl of chili for supper :) Gotta love being able to come home and heat up leftovers for a quick and easy meal.
I hope everyone has a great Friday tomorrow and then a wonderful weekend :). Lord will next time this week I will be in the States!!
Verse of the Day:
He had to be made like his brothers in every way, in order that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest in service to God, and that he might make atonement for the sins of the people.— Hebrews 2:17
Thoughts on Today's Verse...There are not many things the Bible says Jesus "had" to do. This is a key one. Jesus had to be one of us. Notice that he did this so he could be like us, his brothers (and sisters) in every way. The reason? So he could be the perfect and faithful high priest who not only made atonement for our sins, but was also the atoning sacrifice for those sins. Incredible!
My Utmost For His Highest:
“Try to state to yourself what you believe to be the absolute truth of God, and you will be allowing God the opportunity to pass it on through you to someone else.”
I think this is so true! I know since I have been out of college and overseas and around a lot of new people, the Lord has allowed me to grow in this area. I think at times we can get comfortable with where we are. We build up a reputation with those we come in contact with, on a regular basis that after awhile we don’t have to say anything. I realize that actions are important as well, but we do need to practice being vocal with our walk in the Lord. I have had the opportunity to be exposed to different cultures and people over the past 3 years a lot. What a neat opportunity to be a light for the Lord. You never know how one conversation (what may seem minute to you), leads to someone asking the Lord into their heart and life later on in life.
