My Life Without Emuna

Life Without Emuna
Life is hard. Sometimes I feel like we're collectively drowning under impossible challenges. And it doesn't look to me like things will get any easier.

Don't you feel that way? 

Just look at your own life. Many of you have really serious challenges, whether in health, finances or relationships. If you were to answer which challenge is the hardest for you to deal with, you might answer "All of the above."

What's the one thing that I can say has saved my sanity over and over again? 

Likely it's the same thing that you would say: emuna

Sometimes when I have a moment to reflect on my challenges, it's tempting to get upset and despair about them. Isn't it?

Don't you sometimes also wonder to yourself, "When will things get better? Will they ever get better?" 

I completely believe that if I didn't have emuna to support me during the difficult times, my life would be a total mess. I would be a total mess. Who knows where I would be? What would I be doing? Would I still be married? Would I suffer from anxiety? Self-persecution? Guilt? Even worse, G-d forbid?

Think about your life and ask yourself the same question: Where would I be without emuna? 

Really think about it for a minute.

Would you honestly say that emuna has literally saved your life? 

Maybe it saved your marriage, your children's lives? Maybe it restored your will to live?

Emuna is no joke. It's the only thing we have to help us survive this difficult time.

Now I'd like you to think about all those people in the world that don't have emuna to hold on to. 

How do you think they feel? Can you imagine what agony they must be going through each day? Suffering from impossible challenges, yet not knowing who to turn to for help and guidance? 

Does your heart not break for them?

Therefore, I ask you, I plead with you, to help us spread emuna around the world. 

I remember when I read "The Garden of Gratitude." I said to myself, "If this book doesn't bring Mashiach, I don't know what will." 

I am pretty sure you agree with me. Emuna and gratitude are our lifesavers. They're all we've got. 

So please. Donate to Emuna Outreach. Be our partners in giving others life, joy, self-worth, and belief in Hashem. With your donation, we will be able to spread more books and cd's, and improve our website, breslev.co.il. 

You know how much emuna has helped you. Now is your chance to share this life-saving wisdom with others. 

Because when life is over and you have to look back on what you've done in the world, you can be sure that your joy will know no bounds when you see how many people you've helped, simply by being a part of this tremendous cause. 

May Hashem bless you with all of your heart's desires, and may we all be together to greet the Mashiach in joy, Amen. 

CLICK HERE to donate. 

Have a wonderful day!
