I have the best job! To think I get paid to talk about and study Judaism and personal growth with amazing women!!
On Thursdays I have a group we call Ladies STaG (Study, Think and Grow) and yesterday we spoke about MIRACLES!
I heard a story about the Lubavitcher Rebbe of blessed memory. When he was a small boy in Russia he liked to play with the boys in the neighborhood. They, unfortunately did not have the same affection towards him. They would play Hide and Seek, Unlike the way we played the game in the US, where everyone hides and one person seeks, it was the opposite! There, it was KGB style! One person hides and everyone else seeks! So it was the young Rebbe’s turn to be the hider and he found a great spot. He waited five minutes, ten minutes, twenty….thirty minutes later he realized that no one was coming for him. He came out of hiding and sure enough the other boys had left. He went home very sad and cried to his parents…”I was hiding but no one was seeking me!” His father (or mother, not sure) said…”My child, please remember this when you are older. This is how the Shechina (Divine Presence) feels.
So we learned that we are living the game of Hide & Seek! Hashem is the “Hider” and we are supposed to be seeking! And the more we seek, the more Hashem comes out from hiding. And Hashem WANTS TO BE FOUND!
