40 Days – Day 27

40 Days of Lent – From Release to Embrace

Rule 27

Whatever you speak, good or evil, will somehow come back to you. Therefore, if there is someone who harbors ill thoughts about you, saying similarly bad things about him will only make matters worse. You will be locked in a vicious circle of malevolent energy. Instead, for forty days and nights, say and think beautiful things about that person. Everything will be different at the end of 40 days because you will be different inside.”

Listen to the Rule on Youtube:


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

Our Lent Booklet reminds us today that when we allow ourselves to become overwhelmed life can feel like a pressure cooker. “It is difficult to know what to do next.” 

In such moments we are reminded to call upon Jesus. “Ask, and it will be given you” Jesus said. In the silence, we can ask for the next step. We maybe surprised at some unexpected situations bubbling up in response to our request. Start to move anyway, follow the guidance. Overwhelm will dissipate with every step we align ourselves with the Divine guidance.

Today, I invite you to contemplate on Rule No27 and the quote below. Let me know how practicing releasing overwhelm worked for you today. 

Ask, and it will be given you; search, and you will and; knock, an the door will be opened for you. Matthew 7:7

Today we affirm: I relax and let go of feelings of overwhelm, knowing all will be well.
