Life-Nourishing Ways

It took twice as long to journal as I recorded the details of applying for a passport. It also took twice as long to write and publish my post.

Coffee pods were on sale. David bought a month’s supply. I had to rearrange the pantry to make room for them.

I ironed and published a Instagram post. It was late in the afternoon and I still needed to practice, memorize the new song, type notes from the book I’m studying and plan next week. Then I remembered my verse for today.

Ezekiel 33:14, “On the other hand, if I tell a wicked person, ‘You’ll die for your wicked life,’ and he repents of his sin and starts living a righteous and just life – being generous to the down-and-out, restoring what he had stolen, cultivating life-nourishing ways that don’t hurt others – he’ll live.” The Message

A righteous and just life:

  1. Repent, or turn away, from sins.
  2. Be generous to the down-and-out.
  3. Restore what I stole.
  4. Cultivate life-nourishing ways that don’t hurt others.

I failed on the fourth one. I skipped exercising today. I got down on the floor and worked on my core. (Tomorrow is “weights day.”)

Cultivating life-nourishing ways is exercise, drinking water, eating right, taking time to relax, and getting sufficient rest. After supper, I did two more tasks and worked until 7:00 p.m. Then I put in a movie and relaxed. The rest can wait until tomorrow.

August 23, 2019: Ezekiel 33-35.
