ONE WAY EVERYDAY
December 5th, 2013
BLESSING NUMBER 55: My friendship with Rebbetzin Esther Jungreis is a symbol of the love God has for me. Several years ago I read her book, The Committed Life. After reading the last page I simply said, “Lord, I would love to meet this woman of God one day.” Two years later through two divine appointments the Lord fulfilled my desire. We met and it was love at first sight!
She is a beautiful soul who lives and breathes the Torah. Allow me to share what she writes about forgiveness, “To make mistakes is human, but to institutionalize those mistakes and to make them part of your personality and character is to deny the image of God in which we were created.”
“This concept of asking for forgiveness and thereby canceling out the past and starting all over again is one of the pillars of our faith through which we are able to liberate ourselves from the darkness of our yesterdays.” I consider it a blessing from God to know her and I am thankful.
ONE WORD EVERYDAY
…to open their eyes and turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, so that they may receive forgiveness of sins and a place among those who are sanctified by faith in me.’
