Do you ever feel overwhelmed by the challenges you’re facing? It can be hard to have Emunah in Hashem but, thats when the Yetzer Hara gets in our way and tries to pull us down.
That doesn’t mean that we have to pretend that we are okay, but we can certainly trust that Hashem is in control. I will be the first to admit that I am a drama queen when I have challenges thrown at me. I just can’t help it, I’ve literally worried myself sick before. I overthink, replay everything in my head, repeat conversations and shut down. Well at least I use to until I was reminded Hashem already has everything written down and what needs to happen will happen.
I realized two things. First, worrying hasn’t helped me a single bit, and second, I usually end up doing better in the situation than I initially thought I would.
When we are worried it's usually a sign of a lack of Emunah in Hashem. If you truly believed that he could handle things then we wouldn’t think twice about the challenges being given to us. We’re supposed to praise God in every situation, even the bad.
Hashem is In Control !
He controls our financial situation, our relationship status, our health, and our jobs. Everything comes from Hakadosh Baruchu. Stop worrying that God won’t provide. Stop trying to control what only Hashem can.

Joshua said to them, “Do not be frightened or dismayed; be firm and resolute. For this is what GOD is going to do to all the enemies with whom you are at war.”
