Hashem Says, "I'll Be There"

Time for a smile:

Upset about lockdown, Coronavirus and everything you have to do until Pesach? You don't know where the money or strength to cope with this will come from? Hashem has a message from Motown, by way of lead singer Levi Stubbs and the Four Tops - here it is:

Lyrics by Dozier Lamont Herbert, Holland Brian, emuna adaptation by Rabbi Lazer Brody

Performance, The Four Tops, 1966 (see below, it's a classic)

Now if you feel that you can't go on (can't go on)
Because all of your hope is gone (all your hope is gone)
And your life is filled with much confusion (much confusion)
Until happiness is just an illusion (happiness is just an illusion)
And your world around is crumbling down, beloved child

(Reach out) Come on child reach on out for Me
(Reach out) Reach out for Me
Hah, I'll be there with a love that will shelter you
I'll be there with a love that will see you through

When you feel lost and about to give up (to give up)
'Cause your best just ain't good enough (just ain't good enough)
And your feel the world has grown cold (has grown cold)
And your drifting out all on your own (drifting out on your own)
And you need a hand to hold, child

(Reach out) Come on child, reach out for Me
(Reach out) Reach out for Me
Hah, I'll be there to love and comfort you
And I'll be there to cherish and care for you

(I'll be there to always see you through)
(I'll be there to love and comfort you)

I can tell the way you hang your head (hang your head)
You're not happy now, now you're afraid (you're afraid)
And through your tears you look around (look around)
But there's no peace of mind to be found (no peace of mind to be found)
I know what your thinking
You're a loner, alone and on your own, but child

(Reach out) Come on child reach out for Me
Reach out, just look over your shoulder
I'll be there to give you all the love you need
And I'll be there you can always depend on Me
I'll be there


Coronavirus: The Concealed Blessing

Emuna teaches us that everything is from Hashem is a loving Father, so that everything He does is for our ultimate benefit. If we look close enough, we can find a concealed blessing within every creation. If so, the big question is, what could possibly be a blessing about a pandemic in general, and Coronavirus in particular? Let's get some answers in today's podcast...


Brave Heart: Body & Soul Protection from Coronavirus

Today's video podcast not only gives advice on how to keep body and soul healthy in the face of the Coronavirus pandemic, but shows that King David dealt with a terrible plague in his time that his son King Solomon knew all about, which the holy Tanna Onkolos calls "Kurhana". See for yourself, and see how King David stopped the plague as well as a 950-year promise from Rashi about how to defeat this disease...


The Prayer for Turning Difficulties into Diamonds

Emuna Diamond Weeds
On today's podcast (which you can hear below), we mention a prayer that can turn difficulties into diamonds. The prayer, which I had the privilege of composing, is based on a quote from the holy Rebbe Avraham Dov of Avritch, osb"m, aka "The Bat Ayin". He says: "Anyone who believes that all the events in his/her life are the product of Hashem's Divine Providence brings compassion from the Upper World down to this world." 

Prayer for Turning Difficulties into Diamonds, composed by Rabbi Lazer Brody:

"Master of the World, I believe with a full and complete belief that my difficulties, troubles and challenges, particularly the one I am facing right now, are from You and a result of Your precision Divine Providence that never makes mistakes, for You are perfection. Although I might not know why I am suffering this difficulty, I believe with full and complete belief that You love me and that You are giving me this challenge for my very best. Please, Father in Heaven, as I willfully accept this tribulation, please willfully accept my prayer for ___________________ (plug in the blank with whatever "diamond" you want to ask for)."

The above prayer really works. To hear how, listen to today's podcast, directly below:
