Purity is not a long struggle against that which is impure or forbidden. Rather it is a singleness of heart. Catch the great thought that from HIM, the Father of Lights, comes every good and perfect gift, and therefore nothing outside of God is worth having or craving.
Early morning #coffee experiments | #aeropress #bonavitagooseneckvariable #severin | The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders 5 (DSM 5) describes caffeine intoxication as occurring when an individual consumes considerably more than 250mg of caffeine in a short period. Now that is quite a feat to consume that amount of caffeine in coffee alone, but let me ask you if you have ever experienced any of the following symptoms following your 2nd (or 3rd) espresso: • Restlessness • Nervousness • Excitement • Insomnia • Flushed face • Diuresis (Frequent urination) • Gastronintestinal disturbance (Stomach trouble) • Muscle twitching • Rambling flow of thought and speech • Cardiac arrhythmia (Heart beating strangely) • Periods of inexhaustibility • Psychomotor agitation (E.g. Tapping your foot or hands rapidly) These are the symptoms of caffeine intoxication. (at Capri Village, Noordhoek)
Is your imagination stayed on God or is it starved? The starvation of the imagination is one of the most fruitful sources of exhaustion and sapping in a worker’s life. If you have never used your imagination to put yourself before God, begin to do it now. It is no use waiting for God to come; you must put your imagination away from the face of idols and look unto Him and be saved. Imagination is the greatest gift God has given us and it ought to be devoted entirely to Him. If you have been bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, it will be one of the greatest assets to faith when the time of trial comes because your faith and the Spirit of God will work together.
