I woke up to snow in the ground this morning
So we ended up winning our game today from a forfeit. Apparently the team has some injuries and so they were not able to put together a full team. Today we had shoot around and then I just relaxed this afternoon. I rested for a little bit, read some, and watched a movie, before heading to the game. We still had to show up, to make it official that the other team did not show up.
We go into the break with a 15-7 record.
12-2 in Polish League - 2nd place
3-5 in Euroleage
Tomorrow is the day I fly out :)
ONE DAY!! If all goes well, I should get into the States around 4:15 p.m.
*Here is a pic of my team and me hanging out with the President before our game. We had to wait for 15 min past the official start of the game before we could leave.
And again, Isaiah says, "The Root of Jesse will spring up, one who will arise to rule over the nations; the Gentiles will hope in him."— Romans 15:12
Thoughts on Today's Verse...When Jesus came, he did come to the nation of Israel, according to the promises made to God's people. He was a proper descendant of King David, the son of Jesse. His birth was prophesied by Jewish prophets and recorded in the Bible of the Israelite people. But no matter how Jewish his origins, Jesus came for all people in fulfillment of Old Testament promises that God would save all nations through Israel and the Jewish Messiah. While David brought Israel great power and notoriety as an awesome warrior and King, Jesus brought the reign of grace to the hearts of millions of Jews and non-Jews by conquering death and bringing true life.
My Utmost For His Highest:
“My experience is not what makes redemption real— redemption is reality. Redemption has no real meaning for me until it is worked out through my conscious life. When I am born again, the Spirit of God takes me beyond myself and my experiences, and identifies me with Jesus Christ.”
This is so true!! Redemption is awesome, but it is something we must take serious!! When we are redeemed, there needs to be a turning away from sin.
