Day 11 of the Fruit Fast. i received some stress today. i came as i had to make certain financial decisions that would affect my family. Financial stress is one the reasons in times past i would tend to overeat or eat at improper times. i felt it heavy upon me, but i can report that by the Grace given me from Heaven, i was able to weather it. The decision i made will cost me several thousand dollars that are badly needed, but its the right thing. i was reminded of the scripture in Romans which says:
Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
Romans 8:29 For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.
After discussing the situation thoroughly with my wife and praying earnestly we agreed on a decision. We went to bed with some consternation but also with the knowledge that we are still on track to "be conformed to the image of His Son,. because we are doing the right thing. Which is most important. As i awoke this morning i was much more assured of the situation and although i know not how it will all work out, i know it will be for my eternal good. Being self-employed and not knowing where the next dollar is coming from is a walk of Faith. It can be alot of fun, but then there are times like this. i always muse that there is no need for me to watch drama on tv or add additional drama to my life as my life as more naturally occurring drama than i want already!
That being said, my food intake was lighter today as the things on my mind outweighed any hunger i may have had. Still, i ate well and also had a descent workout.
55oz smoothie made with one mango, 3 bananas, 4 strawberries and about 40oz of watermelon juice. Really good.
Half a watermelon, 2 bananas, 1 avocado.
