Enlighten our Eyes - Day 50

Our weekly excerpt from the book "Enlighten our Eyes" (translated from the Hebrew sefer called "Ve'ha'er Eineinu")

Emunah: Thinking about the ten makos, Krias Yam Suf, and the ensuing magnificent display of Hashem’s total power, enhances emunah. In addition creating clear, real- ife pictures in the mind ( ציור ) will make it even more effective, awakening dormant emunah that is already inside us.

Think of Hashem’s infinite power whilst putting on tefillin, when mentioning yetzias Mitzrayim in Shema, etc. The more real one’s emunah, the weaker his yeitzer Hora. This is also a tikkun for any previous misuse of the mind.

Hashem believes in our potential for greatness ( והייתם לי סגולה שמות יט, ה ). Feel confident that with time we will see the fulfilment of the pasuk תחת הנעצוץ יעלה ברוש ותחת הסרפד יעלה הדס , In place of the thorn bush, a cypress will rise, and in place of the stinging nettle, a myrtle will grow .(ישעיה נה, יג)

Interwoven: The Neshomos of all Yidden are deeply connected ( תומר דבורה פ״א מדת לשארית נחלתו ). By strengthening yourself, who knows how many other Yidden you are helping to stay loyal.

May our eyes merit to witness the coming of Moshiach, והוא ישמיענו ברחמיו שנית לעיני כל חי להיות לכם לאלקים אני ה' אלוקיכם , And He will answer us, in His mercy, a second time before the eyes of all living to be a G-d to you, ״I am Hashem your G-d

With hope, and with love, and with respect for your courage in reaching out,

Your friend,

Reb Yehuda Leib Wittler

P.S. There is so much more that could and should be said. Who knows if Hashem’s guiding hand will not grant us to meet, benefiting from each other’s company.
