So much unknown. Will President Trump successfully challenge the election in the court system? Who will control the Senate? How many more seats will Republicans gain in the House? Will the lockdowns continue? Will the vaccine be mandatory? Will rioting subside or increase?
While not having the answers to these questions can make one feel helpless, perhaps for us it is a great opportunity to internalize that there is a creator of this world Who controls everything that happens in it. There is no reason to feel anxious. There is zero reason to worry. We need to suspend our calculations and surrender to His control. In addition to being a great idea on an emotional level it is also the truth.
If our Zaides and Bubbes lived, and when necessary gave up their lives for this truth, then we can certainly rise above the current defeatist atmosphere and focus more on our Davening, our learning Torah and take advantage of opportunities for good deeds.
We are now in Chodesh Kislev and the Nes Chanukah is just around the corner. A minority can persevere over the majority and light wins over darkness. May we experience this very soon in the literal sense with the coming of Moshiach. When the occupation of all nations will be the pursuit of G-dly knowledge. Ub’karov Mamosh.
Wishing you a wonderful Shabbos,
