Waiting expectantly for my breakthrough

Awesome. I was almost losing faith. This story reminded me that HaShem is giving me the breakthrough I have been praying for. I can only say thank you dear Abba for the breakthrough on my way.

He is waiting to hear...

With all my soul and all my heart, I believe this. We only have to pay attention and to be humbly faithful.

Thanks for inspiring another human being.

It takes a good man like you to make the world a better place. We all need each other whether or not we know it God is in us all and we need to help him come out .

An amazing story but excellent commentary by the rabbi as well, to put it in context and make it meaningful for each of us.

Nechemia ben Elazar

I was in the process of aliyah during the Protective Edge. I could not be happier living in Israel. I prayed for a soldier during Tzuk Eitan as well. Nechemia ben Elazar. Nechemia, if you ever see this message, and you want, please get in touch with me.
