40 Days – Day 37

40 Days of Lent – From Release to Embrace

Rule 37

God is a meticulous dock maker. So precise is His order that everything on earth happens in its own time — neither a minute late nor a minute early. And for everyone without exception, the clock works accurately. For each, there is a time to love and a time to die.”

Listen to the Rule on Youtube:


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

Our Lent Booklet reminds us today that the wisest choice is to willingly go with the flow because life flows. When we dig in our heels and claim the rightness of our own agenda, we struggle. We are reminded that fighting what we don’t want only gives it more energy.  There is no need to control, as we release our grip, we start flowing with the Divine. 

Today, I invite you to contemplate on Rule No37 and the quote below. Let me know how practicing releasing struggle worked for you today. 

A fool gives full vent to anger, but the wise quietly holds it back. Proverbs 29:11

Today we affirm: Embracing divine life, I willingly go with the flow.
