Hashem deliberately creates a lacking or absence in our lives to encourage us to turn to Him and connect with Him; to remind us why we are here. This lack or need is put into our life out of His kindness and mercy, knowing that the maximum pleasure we can obtain in this world is by connecting with Him. It is our choice to connect on a regular basis or merely when we are lacking, the idea is to interact with life knowing G-d is with us always. The challenges are there to impel us in His direction.
Feel and heal exercise of the day:
Contemplate ‘G-d’s desire’ to want us, His creation, to have a relationship with Him. Through our trials and tribulations we are meant to reach out and remember that we are not alone!
