40 Days – Day 31

40 Days of Lent – From Release to Embrace

Rule 31

If you want to strengthen your faith, you will need to soften inside. For your faith to be rock solid, your heart needs to be as soft as a feather. Through an illness, accident, loss, or fright, one way or another, we are all faced with incidents that teach us how to become less selfish and judgmental and more compassionate and generous. Yet some of us learn the lesson and manage to become milder, while some others end up becoming even harsher than before.

Listen to the Rule on Youtube:


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

Our Lent Booklet reminds us today that resentment is a state of ‘re-feeling and re-thinking’ a “disturbing and unpleasant experience from the past. Whatever we consistently think about and charge with feeling determines the way we see and experience our world.” We can chose to focus on the good we want to manifest instead.

Today, I invite you to contemplate on Rule No31 and the quote below. Let me know how practicing releasing resentment worked for you today. 

Whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever
is pure, whatever is pleasing, whatever is commendable, if there
is any excellence and if there is anything worthy of praise, think
about these things. Philippians 4:8

Today we affirm: I focus on the good I desire to experience
