40 Days – Day 15

40 Days of Lent – From Release to Embrace

Rule 15

It’s easy to love a perfect God, unblemished and infallible that He is. What is far more difficult is to love fellow human beings with all their imperfections and defects. Remember, one can only know what one is capable of loving. There is no wisdom without love. Unless we learn to love God’s creation, we can neither truly love nor truly know God.“* 

Listen to the Rule on YOUTUBE:


Today, we are releasing Drama and embracing God’s Love for us. 

Our Lent Booklet reminds us today that drama  is often accompanied with emotional anxiety, envy, depression, confusion and anger. However, by maintaining our spiritual stability we can handle any drama. It is also beneficial to apply affirmations and denials as we choose to enter different situations in our lives. 

Similar to our Rule today, we are reminded again that as we centre ourselves in Love we are able to bring forward Loving into any situation. It is surely easy to engage when the event at hand is joyful and people are nice and accommodating. There is no life without drama, however. It is just part of life. The test of the pudding is to stay loving and kind when drama sets in without becoming numb. Drama is not to avoid but to learn from.

Today, I invite you to contemplate on Rule No15 and the quote below. Let me know how practicing releasing drama worked for you today. 

Let no evil talk come out of your mouths, but only what is useful
for building up, as there is need, so that your words may give grace to those who hear. Ephesians 4:29

Today we affirm:  I let nothing and no one upset the calm peace of my soul.
