Day 124 of the Fruit feast. i have been praying for a deeper knowledge of God's Love. i continue to pray not just for more knowledge
of His Love but also for His Love to be more fully manifested in me. In
this way i can be used as a consecrated vessel to bring my Heavenly
Father and my Lord Christ more glory and honor with the life i live in
Matthew 5:43 Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.
Matthew 5:44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you,
do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use
you, and persecute you;
Matthew 5:45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for
he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain
on the just and on the unjust.
Matthew 5:48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.
i thought on the part about the Lord sending blessings upon both "evil and good" and "just and unjust". i saw the sun mentioned. i
realized that if the earth was to move off of its appointed path just a
small amount towards the sun, we would all be burned to death. That if
the firmament that the Creator placed to surround the earth did not
shield it from the full power of the sun's rays, we would be all burned
to death. i thought about how the Creator prepared these things and
filled the earth with clean air and keeps the hearts of all wherein is
the breath of life beating. Yet, the vast majority of the planet not
only give Him no honor or glory, but either literally or figuratively
shake their fist at Him. Yet He still keeps their hearts beating. He
still provides the fresh air, He still keeps the earth on its appointed
path. He is so very patient with the earth, His Love is strong even when
the earth has chosen His eternal enemy to rule over them rather than
the Creator. i want to live that Love.
John 13:34 A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.
John 13:35 By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.
i am really feeling pretty wonderful these days. This being the end of the third week of May, i will have
done over 4000 push ups and 900 chins. Not to mention the squats,
pistols and such for the legs. The push up/chin goal for this month was
4500/1000. But it appears i will surpass 5000/1200. i want to stay on my
original schedule and add 500 push ups per month each month. i have not
set a chin goal, but i will just allow that to flow on the coattails of
the push ups. The Lord is really energizing me thru the Fruit. While
salt is back in my life (again), i am still 100% Raw. i really want to
stay that way. i realize its the grains that have really been hindering
my growth for a long time. They were friends for a long time, but i know
now what they have been doing to me. The mucous, the clogged digestive
tract, the lethargy, all due to my great love for grain foods. For some,
the grains are still friends and i never want to condemn those who
still employ them, but i feel its time for me to move on. Most of all i
am reaching higher heights in the Spirit. Growing in Love for Christ and
becoming more determined to be His fully consecrated vessel in every
area of Life.
Philippians 1:21 For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.
