Short Idea- Parshat Shelach 5782💡
From the narrow place- Hashem always helps.
In our parsha, in Moshe Rabeinu’s prayer on behalf of Am Yisrael before Hashem, after the Sin of the Spies, he praises Gd as being patient and full of kindness, ארך אפים ורב חסד.💖
Rebbe Nachman teaches in Likutei Moharan💥, based on the verse in Tehillim “In the sorrow, You have given me an expansion”, that even in the difficulty or sorrow itself Hashem helps us. We can find Hashem’s kindness and help even in the difficulties themselves.🧐 (Likutei Moharan teaching 195)
I had surgery last week in the hospital and BH it was successful.🙏 As I reflected on the experience of the surgery and the recovery process that I’m in,🤔 I thought about this teaching from Rebbe Nachman. I was able to keep up with my daily journal writing✍️ even when I was in the hospital. In addition to turning to Hashem with my fears and pain regarding the surgery, I also was able to write down and reflect on the kindnesses I experienced during the time in the hospital.❤️ I had a nice room. I got a room after just a short wait. The staff were kind and helpful. I had time to rest. I had a really nice roommate. I had all the food I needed. My family was very dedicated and supportive. There were so many kindnesses surrounding me!❤️💖 Even in the difficulties there are so many things to be thankful for.🤗
Thank you Hashem, and thank you everyone for your prayers.🙏
Shabbat Shalom 🕯️🕯️
