Hardship at my job
Thank you so much for these incredible video posts - they are very to the point!
For about 3 years now (since we had our second child), I'm experiencing hardship/difficulty at my job. I definitely know that it's a test because it's very difficult for me. So, I got the 90%, but - What category (G-CAM) would that go under? and how would I get that last 5% to completely relieve myself of this difficult test in my life.

It's difficult for me to tell you exactly which category of test, as I do not know the details. Please fell free to email me with more information: LPalatnik@aish.com

I have Scleroderma and last year I got a staph infection in a calcium deposit in my elbow. The doctor wanted me to go to the hospital or come to his office everyday for treatment. I refused so they put me on drugs instead. I made this decision in fear and depression and I'm still alive. Maybe you should teach about "free will". Life is a test and our outcomes are predetermined? I'm Jewish and love Hashem, but all this talk is not true. You won't turn on your lights, but you open your refrigerators. Come on. I'd rather drive to synagogue and be with the Jewish community or turn on a CD from Neshama Carlebach and listen to His love for me. There is no reason to stay home and be alone today (even in Israel). One of your Rabbis on Aish.com wrote back to a disabled person and told him not to turn on his computer on Shabbat. I was so upset with his advice. This is the 21st century and I turn on my computer every Shabbat to learn Torah. All I have to say is Isa. 3:18 from the Stone Edition Tanach. You do more harm than good because you are not bringing those like myself closer to Hashem. We need to draw close to Him and everyday is Shabbat in my life. You are very sweet and I enjoy your teachings. My husband is having surgery on his right hand for cancer next month. Please pray for him. Thank you. Shalom and blessings, Robin

It is nice to see that even though you seem to disagree with a lot of what you read and see on aish.com, that you still keep coming back. It is an example of what we always teach: "It's not all or nothing." Your perseverance and desire for wisdom, even though you may struggle, is inspiring.

Thank you...I'm going through a very hard test.
Thank you, Lori, for giving such encouraging and sound advice. I am going through a very deep and personally painful test right now. I cried all night and most of today. Then your email came and you helped me gain some perspective. Thank you....it's only a test!

Oh yes! Life's wonderful tests!
You are a wise, beautiful person! As I am getting closer to the Almighty and getting older I too am learning to be wiser and realize these life tests are sent to us to make us grow and learn. I am not always keeping the greatest attitude but I am trying and getting better at passing these tests.
Blessings on you and yours, Shalom

Am I calm or just laid back?
Lori, this is a great series and I wish some people around me would listen to this so that they can understand me more. I am looked at as just being a laid back guy and nothing ever bothers me and nothing seems important to me. This is just so not true about me, how do I get others to understand? I care deeply about what happens to my family and friends but I learned that trusting god and viewing things as a test has made me so much stronger and able to deal with difficult people and situations. I guess its another test to make those around me try to learn from me and understand what g-d is trying to teach us all.....???....

lori, these are great videos. I am really getting a lot out of this topic, and hope that you will be able to continue teaching more on the topic of nisyonot in the future.

Everything happens to me--when HIS life is in danger?
I can't believe she said that. I am choking back tears at the thought.
Gd bless the man who had the heart attack. Mishaberach lavotenu Avraham Yitzhak vYaakov, may THAT ONE also bless the man who had the heart attack on that plane to Florida with Refuah haGuf, Refuah haNefesh, Refuah Shlemah, a Complete and Perfect Healing of Body Mind and Spirit, may he live and be well to 120,
Ken Yehi Ratson.
