Learning to accept that everything is always in G d’s Hands.
Nothing is sure in this world.
We may do our best and set up the best plan to succeed in a project, we may believe we have everything in control…. only to find out that the outcome is far and totally contrary to our expectations. Despite all our efforts and all our prayers, still things can go in the opposite direction as our hopes and desires -and plans…
It is said that only through suffering we can enter the World to Come. Even the most righteous of righteous must realise and accept that his stability is not guaranteed, but that absolutely everything is in the hands of G-d.
I understand how hard it is to think of tragedies also in the terms of “this too is for the good……” After all, we are poor humans hardly struggling not to lose our “divine” part that so many are trying to destroy inside ourselves…
And while His Decision may contradict our wishes in this lifetime, only He knows what’s best for us, in the near future and in our future in the afterlife.
May He give us strength to accept His Decisions with total devotion to Him, with love and with joy…. no matter if we don’t get what we want or what we think we need.
Gamzu le tovah… “This too is for the good…”
