Recently while traveling, Baruch and I were struck by the cooler weather in those other locations. While in Israel our daily temps are in the 90s, we encountered weather in the 60s in Moscow and Europe.
We also have Rosh HaShanah and the other Fall Holidays coming up very soon. This prompted me to think about changes I need to make in my life. Last year, (Aug 30/Sept 2), I wrote 2 posts about Cheshbon HaNefesh, where we seek to evaluate ourselves in an honest way and seek forgiveness for G-d for our sins.
One thing I wrote in my post last year was, “I include myself when I say let us pray for G-d to give us His peace in our daily lives so as not to be frazzled and worried about every thing that crops up in our lives.” I must admit that I have failed in improving in this area.
I believe this is a great time to take an accounting of our lives. I know that for myself, there are a lot of changes I’d like to make. Whether it is in my spiritual life, family life, or daily life, there are changes which I believe I am to make.
Are you convicted of some changes you need to make? Maybe in your prayer life or Bible study time? Maybe you are to rearrange some priorities? We all have areas of our life which need to be submitted to the will of G-d.
Let us commit together to pray that the L-rd will reveal to us the changes we need to make and show us how to make these changes.
