Ep. 40 Seeing God’s Hand – Stories of Providence

When you take of G-d’s children, you’re partnering with G-d and you can be confident that he’ll assist you in your efforts. If you want to see the hand of G-d in your life, get involved in communal efforts and you’re sure to see how things come together in ways that are oozing with providence.

In this episode, I veer off my classic style of working through a concept from its biblical roots and through its kabbalistic meaning and instead share a bunch of stories of providence that I recently experienced while building the eruv in Richardson. The hand of G-d was so clear that if we needed to ask someone for access to their property to check on something, we almost knew that they’ll probably be sitting on their front lawn with their dog or mowing “waiting” for us.

I found these stories to be inspirational examples of how when you partner with G-d’s mission in the world, you’ll see how you have the greatest partner possible.

Happy Listening!
