Day 4 of the Fruit Fast. Felt even better today than yesterday. My energy was up, mind was sharper and i was able to be satisfied with 2 meals. As i am looking at my current fruit foray, i figure that eventually my 2 meal plan will include bigger meals as i am going to be more active. For now though, the intake is sufficient. i was thinking today of something Christ said in
And He that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please Him.
No other human that ever lived can make such a statement because the bible says all have sinned. All that is, except the Lord Christ. Because He lived a perfect life, we can receive His Grace and have Him live out His life in us. What a priviledge! So that, even though i have sinned in my past, i can receive forgiveness because of His death for my sins and the power of His Grace to overcome sin going forward. This is why i want to do this diet. i want to please my heavenly Father and my Lord Christ......always. Because my body is the dwelling place of His Spirit and its not my own. i want my mind clear to connect more fully with Him who is my life and i want to do "always those things that please Him".
Today's meals were:
55oz of smoothie consisting of watermelon juice, OJ, 3 bananas and some molasses. i also ate one banana.
4 bananas, 1 pear, 2 apples, 7 dried figs, 1 avocado.
i did one set of pushups (50) and one set of wide grip chins (7) before i had to rush out. When i returned i did 3 more sets of 7 chins and 3 sets of 50 pushups. The thing about that is, i did those last 3 x 3 in less than 5 minutes. What a workout that was and a challenge!
Grace and Peace be multiplied.
