7 – 98. Do Many Great Things…
99. Remember G-d
I’ve been pursuing these worthwhile goals of 1 – 98,
AND running into mishaps.
Tiny things like the computer dropping all my saved passwords.
Today? … Finding out that when I had extended my 2021 taxes back in April of 2022…
I had accidentally actually filed them for real!
Now, I need to amend the entire return…
This last one got to me. Unraveling, I asked myself… How could I make this mistake?! I called the nice IRS agent and grilled him too. How do I fix this??!
As I shook with anxiety, I remembered……. !
Hashem, what do you want of me?
I’ll try this again.
1 – 99. Remember G-d
99 +… Eat Healthier, Exercise More, etc…
Remembering to remember seems like it would be the easiest thing. I find it hard. My to-do list seems so important; I become wholly distracted by it.
In the midst of this whirlwind, I said to myself over and over – Hashem, I give this to you… What do you want of me?… repeat, repeat, repeat.
Then I remembered, this is NOT so important, this will get taken care of…
This Is Okay
My breathing slows, I send the emails needed to unravel this mess. (Better the mess gets unraveled than me!)
And the day goes on.
I expect something really good..
to come out of these little mishaps. A friend of mine always says, “In G-d’s sweet hands.” Any problem given to G-d, well, we cannot even imagine the good Hashem can weave out of it. When I remember to turn and give it to Hashem.
That said, my oldest son recently took on a Hebrew name (another story, not for now!) Our Rabbi suggested Zachariah, and he went with it.
What do you think Zachariah means?
Whenever I say his Hebrew name, I get just the reminder I need.
It’s time for sleep. After remembering God, I still need my to-do list. Numbers 99 +…
