Your Daily Dose of Jewish Wisdom:
People ask, “How can I have confidence that everything will work out for the best? Perhaps I don’t deserve the best. Perhaps I’ve already messed up so bad, G‑d has given up on me.” These people are confusing trust with faith.
Faith is something you may or may not have. But trust is something you do. Hard.
Trust is when, in times of trouble, you cleave so unshakably to the heavens, you pull them down to earth.
Trust is a mighty, heroic bond. Trust changes who you are—and what you deserve.
And it is available to anybody, at any moment, no matter who they were the moment before.
