40 Days – Day 1

Introduction to 40 Days of Lent – From Release to Embrace

Rule 1

How we see God is a direct reflection of how we see ourselves. If God brings to mind mostly fear and blame, it means there is too much fear and blame swelled inside us. If we see God as full of Love and compassion, so are we.“* 

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

Our Lent Booklet Invites us today – on Ash Wednesday – to release and let go of our anger. Our anger and our inability to accept and release what does not work for us or we do not agree with block our connection with the Divine. If we truly want to experience God’s Love and compassion, we need to be willing to release old ideas, old hurts that no longer serves us. In that we open ourselves to see a world of love and compassion reflected back to us. 

Today, I invite you to contemplate on the Rule No1 and the quote below. Let me know how practicing releasing anger worked for you today. 

Let everyone be quick to listen, slow to speak, slow to anger. James 1:19 

Today we affirm:I release my emotional reactions and heal form within.
