GUT SHABBES MISPUCHE!
Today almost Erev Shabbat, bivouacking in our friends attic room 1 on a mattress on the floor the other on a bed, ----dog that lies faithfully with us,----- exhausted by all the stress, waiting for the judgment of the judges, on the one, who for such a long time has been threatening us, and slandering us, and finally got us evicted from our home, I sigh to Hashem "I can't take anymore, we can't take anymore" I hear The voice immediately say "MAYBE THIS IS THE THING THAT I WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU?!!!"
Job made sacrifices for his sons before they could do anything wrong*** and yet he had to endure deep things.
Like Job, we lost almost everything except what we could salvage just before the eviction.
Every house we could find to buy was canceled until we got a call that we will soon be recognized as the official owners of HIS Machananyim House again.
But first we had to learn this lesson, giving up in Hashem's eyes is not a rejection, but a promotion.
WE CAN sit back and relax because we are so tired of everything. HE wants to do it.
No matter how much we tried, to try our best, to keep the faith, to do everything we could to change the situation,
HE didn't like it.
MY MERCY IS ENOUGH FOR YOU!
We enter the Sabbath with peace of mind. The candles will burn next to our mattresses.
Gut Shabbes, trust HIM! It's about Him and glorifying His Name, He can do that very well Himself. We can lean on Him! Blessed is she who believes, for what has been spoken to her by the Lord SHALL be accomplished. We only need to raise the staff on high ( looking up, and listening to, HIM and obey HIS lead)
The LORD himself will fight for you. Just stay calm.” Then the LORD said to Moses, “Why are you crying out to me? Tell the people to get moving! Pick up your staff and raise your hand over the sea. Divide the water so the Israelites can walk through the middle of the sea on dry ground. And I will harden the hearts of the Egyptians, and they will charge in after the Israelites. My great glory will be displayed through Pharaoh and his troops, his chariots, and his charioteers.
