Hashem is King!

by GYE Member (See all authors)

Something happened yesterday that got me really down. Today, I listened to a shiur I heard by Rabbi Sassoon on surrendering your will to Hashem. If you always want things in life to go your way, you will always be miserable and depressed.

Hashem is the King. If He allowed it to happen, it means it was His Will. End of story. Therefore it was for the best.

There are always moments in life where things don't seem to go your way. This is rooted in a self-centred outlook. An outlook where you think you know what's best for you.

My little brain has no idea why what happened is the best for me. But of course the Brain of Infinite Wisdom knows - and if He would tell me why, it would ruin my chance to grow closer to Him as it wouldn't be a test.

Hashem put me in this situation for a purpose, because He wants me to have 5th level pleasure! The pleasure of being a partner with the Ultimate Pleasure.
