Thursday, Day 192, 100% Raw Fruitarian. i have found that, whenever i experience a real spiritual pinnacle (as i did last weekend), it is usually followed by a spiritual challenge a short time later. It is a counter-attack of the enemy of souls; redoubling his efforts. But it is also part of the balance the God of Heaven has set in the universe, even on this sin-filled sod we dwell in called planet earth. Ecclesiates 7:14 says this about it:
" In the day of prosperity be joyful, but in the day of adversity consider: God also hath set the one over against the other, to the end that man should find nothing after him."
and also this in Ecclesiates 3:1
"To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: "
Needless to say, this has been a challenging week. But these thoughts strengthen and comfort me during such a time. So that i am able to say the Lord hath done all things well, and safely guided me through another week. Moreover, i ate very well this week, even was able to purchase two whole durian (one is in the freezer for the weekend, the children are believing it will not make it, i am not sure either). i am also noticing how i am really more well adapted to the hot weather than i was before. i know this is the result of the fruit. Here is how my day went:
16oz of water. Half a watermelon, about 3 nice pods of durian (1266 calories)
Cucumber-tomato-squash salad with one avocado (no pate today). (477 calories).
one third of a watermelon, one banana, 2 small mangos, 5 valencia oranges (this was over a 90 minute period as i sort of grazed thru it). (1067 calories).
i am having an aversion to drinking the water. i don't know why. The strange thing is, when i drink the water i urinate less than when i don't. Of course, as mentioned before, the urine doesn't have such an offensive odor with the water in my diet. i will continue to do battle with this.
30 minutes in the park. 52 chins, 50 tricep presses, 50 one leg squats each leg.
Grace and Peace be multiplied.
