"An act of faith is the test of trust." Rabbi Akiva Tatz
This statement comes back into clear focus each year during Pesach, but we have a responsibility to recall it in our own lives all year.
This Shabbos Eve is the 14th day of counting the Omer 5775. And so this is a good time to consider the words in a Breslov.org email received today, "Pesach taught us that sometimes we need to just 'skip' or pass over the questions that would otherwise paralyze us and instead do our utmost to connect to G-d any way we can..."
And it continues, "Rebbe Nachman offers practical advice, as always: 'When one has doubts about emunah [faith], say out loud, ‘I believe with complete faith that He is One, First and Last.’ As the verse states, “I believed because I spoke.” The affirmation of emunah can help us even when our faith feels like it’s wavering."
Rabbi Josh Weinberg posted on RJ.org, "During this week of Chesed let us not only count the days, but make our days count."
