Weekend Review of Days 83-86 100% Raw Fruitarian. Had a tremendous spiritual weekend. Approximately, once per quarter, we get together on a Friday night and pray all night to the Father in the name of Jesus Christ. This is following the Lord's example in the book of Luke:
Luke 6:12 And it came to pass in those days, that he went out into a mountain to pray, and continued all night in prayer to God.
If One who was sinless thought it necessary from time to time to pray all night, we who are seeking to be conformed to His Image need to as well. It was a blessing for us and an added blessing for me because of the clarity of thought i am now receiving. We prayed from 9pm to 5am. Then i slept until about 10:30am and we had Sabbath fellowship with our little home church flock from noon and that did not end until 2am! It was all good. So spiritually rich and satisfying. We hiked a little bit on Sabbath evening and just generally were joyful in Christ as we breathed fresh air and took in beautiful scenes of God's handiwork. i ate very well as i enjoyed my last durian (have to wait to get some more) and delicious atafaulo mangos. Finally the large watermelons are starting to appear in some stores so i had some of that this weekend also. It was like meeting an old friend. So sweet and juicy.
On the negative side i pulled a muscle in my ribcage. It actually happened early last week. At first i thought it was a gas pain, but as the week wore on the pain increased because i was doing some serious work on the chin up bar (300 chins last week). So i played some basketball on sunday but i could not do more than one set chins before feeling like i was aggravating the injury. So i shelved all exercise for monday and hope to start back with push ups and leg work on Tuesday. i really want to keep up with at least 1000 push-ups per week. i want 300 chins also but that may not happen this week. This is a strange and somewhat frustrating situation, i have tremendous energy and would love to hit the park hard, but my muscle pull is telling me to rest. The dilemma of the raw fruitarian i suppose. Of course the best thing is to avoid injury altogether, which i will seek to do going forward.
Grace and Peace be multiplied.
