Today’s devotional talked all about just what the title talks about, that life is temporary. Everything that happens here is fleeting. One thing it talked about was seeing this world as a place that we are passing through. As though we went to another country and stayed for a while. One thing the author talked about that I really liked was the idea of being an ambassador in another country. In order to be successful you would need to learn the language and the culture of the country that you are being an ambassador in. However, your loyalties would be fully with the country you are representing. That everything you would say and do would reflect the country you represent. This is how we should be in the world, having everything we say and do represent the kingdom of heaven because that is the country we represent and we are ambassadors for it on earth. It was a very good devotional.
Overall today went very well, considering it was a Saturday. I puttered on a few projects, then I listened and read to books. It was nice and relaxing which was good because I felt weirdly tired all day. I mostly did well with my eating today, for supper I ate a lot more food than I had planned, but it was all healthy food. I cut my calories down quite drastically over the week and I think that was catching up to me because I felt very tired and weak by supper time, after eating a bunch of food I did feel quite a bit better.
I’ve been working on figuring out my travel plans for next month, while I have some ideas of what I want to do I don’t have any for sures just yet.
I’ve really been getting into audiobooks lately, I have to commute for work and it is nice to have something to listen to. I’ve been listening to a really good novel, however I want to listen to the Bible. I’ve been struggling to find a bible I can listen to offline as well as being able to specifically pick where in the Bible I want to listen to. I think I may have found one finally, but I’m not sure quite yet. If it is what I’m looking for, I can start listening to this novel less and the Bible more. Which will be good.
Today was a lazy day that did go well! Tomorrow we are having a nice Easter dinner, so my most immediate goal will be to not get too wild in my eating at the dinner.
Another day down, I can’t get to day 40 without day 6!
That’s all for today!
God bless you!
Jesus loves you!
