Day 18 - Netzach Sh’b Tiferet: Endurance within the Heart

Today is the eighteenth day of the Omer.

 

God brings me out into the expanse,

 

God releases me because God desires me.

 

(Psalm 18:20)

 

We are God’s desire.

We are being called forth to live fully,

To stand in strength,

to let our lights shine.

 

Practice for today:

We ask ourselves,

What do I have to let go of to move forward?

 

I will act compassionately toward all.

I will remember that my strength comes from the Eternal.

(Psalm 18:2)

Rabbi Yael Levy

The Omer teachings you see here and can receive as nightly email reminders by signing up for our mailing list, are taken from Rabbi Yael Levy's Omer guide, Journey through the Wilderness, which is available as a whole in print or as an ebook.

The daily teachings begin Tuesday March 31 and continue to Shavuot, May 19. A Way In also invites you to join us for our annual retreat in the high desert of New Mexico for the last days of the Counting.

The practice as well as Rabbi Yael were featured in a 2015 New York Times article.
