Day 23 - Gevurah Sh’b Netzach: Strength within Endurance
Today is the twenty-third day of the Omer.
Gevurah Sh’b Netzach: Strength within Endurance
My cup overflows.
We ask for the strength to do what is right,
the discipline to follow through on our commitments,
the perseverance to act for good,
even when we don’t see the results we long for.
Practice for today:
Do one action that brings you into connection with others,
that turns you toward the Mystery,
that encourages awe and love,
that is aimed at bringing forth good.
May goodness and kindness pursue me all the days of my life.
I will dwell in the heart of the Mystery always.
—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 Saturday April 20, 2019, and continue to Shavuot, June 8. Also this year, for the first time, A Way In is offering the opportunity to count together one night a week on Zoom, guided live on video by Rabbi Yael Levy. Every Monday evening at 8:30PM EST Rabbi Yael offers a teaching about the week and the day of the Omer, and we stand together and count the new day. Counting together strengthens and helps inspire our experience and practice. Go to instructions for connecting with Zoom.
The practice as well as Rabbi Yael were featured in a 2015 New York Times article.
