Here is the answer to your prayers! A 224-page paperback, The Garden Of Emuna: A Practical Guide to Life teaches you how to have confidence in Hashem’s mysterious management of the universe and life (including yours). It translates Heavenly Messages into easily understood, readily acceptable concepts.
Rabbi Shalom Arush heads the Chut Shel Chesed yeshiva system in Israel, sharing the joys of Breslov Chassidut with rabbinic-studies students and society at large. He wrote this book in Hebrew (B’Gan HaEmunah) a few years ago. Rabbi Lazer Brody, dean of the Ashdod branch translated this book into English so engagingly that Anglo minds can readily absorb its lessons. Both men are IDF alumni with impressive military qualifications. They’ve looked life down as hard as the barrels of guns they saw in combat, and found God in all the details. They share them with readers in this mind-clearing text.
The best features of The Garden Of Emuna: A Practical Guide to Life are that its chapters acknowledge the reality of human emotions and provide easy-to-follow lessons for mastering them while gaining confidence in Hashem. Humor abounds throughout the text and so will your sense of optimism when you read it. The bonus is that the authors address the “Why?” of specific challenges and demonstrate the compassion that Hashem invests in us with those situations.
Pages 47-48 explain part of the issue in black and white: Hashem “utilizes the free will” of others to enact His Will. They will pay the penalty for stepping up to the plate to annoy or to hurt you, but Hashem enables you to learn a spiritual lesson so that you will be spiritually richer for the experience(s).
Business pressures? Physical infirmities? Marital and other family problems? Daily life getting you down? Buy this book and find intelligent answers to what the aggravation is all about plus how to end it as you heal your wounded heart. Page 187 will show you that Hashem will pick up the tab for your modest expense.
