Man alone standing before an ocean as the sun sets, leaving a purple sky

Even in the Worst Darkness, G-d is Calling Out To You

Even in the Worst Darkness, G-d is Calling Out To You

Jacobson, Rabbi YY
February 24, 2021

“How am I supposed to feel hope in this situation? I don’t see an end in sight… The Ba’al Shem Tov said [that] nature is only a camouflage term for frequent miracles. G-d is the One who created the world and is responsible for the world. You don’t have to be anxious about the future… G-d runs the world, no doctor… president… scientist runs the world…


Our vulnerability has been disclosed and displayed. When you can surrender to G-d and embrace your vulnerability, it becomes a tremendous source of confidence…


Can we take emunah and make it real these days?… Really trust Hashem, He is right here, present at this moment… Hope… prayer… love… study of Torah… imagination… dreams… gestures of closeness and affection… inner creativity [are] not on lockdown. So utilize this moment to become an ambassador of love, light, hope and healing…”
