A couple thoughts

I read this in 1 John 5 today, and found it very encouraging! Trying to be obedient can seem like such a burden, but when we focus on loving God, it really isn't a burden at all, it is a joy! :D

2 By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and observe His commandments.
3 For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments; and His commandments are not burdensome.
4 For whatever is born of God overcomes the world; and this is the victory that has overcome the world--our faith.

I played basketball this morning, it was a lot of fun as usual. This afternoon, I got a call from the athletic director at school saying that he received all my paperwork for baseball. YAY! I got so excited that I watched some baseball technique videos to brush up on stuff, and learned that I can improve my swing (actually, I used to hit correctly until my coach told me to put my back elbow up). Just in case you were wondering... no, you are not supposed to put your back elbow up, but don't dip you back shoulder either. haha Anyways, I am excited about baseball! My first game is at the end of January against none other than San Diego Christian College. :) This evening, I was given the opportunity to lead worship for the high school Awana group which I absolutely love to do! Now I am doing homework once again.
