    So I’m going through a rough time right now and I’m looking for quotes/pesukim on life, hope, faith, happiness, Hashem….

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you!

    Mitzvah gedolah l’hiyos b’simchah tamid. Even if you are not in a happy mode right now (so sorry about that for your sake), perhaps if you try to feel better for the sake of it being a mitzvah to do so, you make come to feel better for real. This (sad matzav), too, shall pass.

    Sometimes the best thing you can do is ride out the storm, and sometimes it is better to occupy yourself with worthwhile things (doing chessed, going on enjoyable outings, sitting by some beautiful aspect of nature, and contemplating the positive things in lfie that Hashem has given us). No one is immune to pain. How we react to and deal with it, is what defines us. Hatzlacha rabbah.

    rachman liba bae-hashem wants the heart

    Try reading the tochacha in bechukosai. For me that is the strongest chizuk. I can never get through without bursting into tears.

    R. Berekiah said: The Congregation of Israel also made a thoughtless request, yet God granted

    that request,14 as it is said, And let us know, eagerly strive to know the Lord. His going forth is sure

    as the morning: and He shall come to us as the rain.15 The Holy One, blessed be He, said to her

    [Israel]: My daughter, thou askest for something16 which at times is desirable and at other times is

    not desirable, but I will be unto thee something which is desirable at all times, as it is said, I will be

    as dew unto Israel.17 She further made another thoughtless request. She said before Him,: O God, Set

    me as a seal upon thy heart,- as a seal upon thine arm.18 Thereupon the Holy One, blessed be He,

    replied to her: My daughter, thou askest for something which at times can be seen and at other times

    cannot be seen. I, however, will make of thee something which can be seen at all times, as it is said,

    Behold I have graven thee upon the palms of My hands.19

    I really feel what you are going through as I have also had similar feelings of emptiness and doubt. Believe me, it will get better. Once I began to realize that everything I do is written down, I found it so hard to look places I shouldn’t etc. Maybe this thought will also help you.

    Have you tried divreiChizuk.com?

    It is a little hard to be of help, as you haven’t mentioned what type of problems you are having. But believe me, whatever they are, I’ve been through all of them and more. It does take a lot of work to turn one’s mind around, but it is possible.

    As I quoted on another post:

    “We can’t change the sea, only adjust our sails”

    What picks me up right now has been tehilim, crying to HaShem, and good friends who care. (Also teachers…well…everyone says they care, I have yet to see)

    All you gotta remember is that God is right HERE, and he can give YOU whatever you want.

    Just try to ask.

    #1016984

    Wow! How long did it take you to type that all out? (and how do you know practically all of shas?)

    I wish we could post our tehilim names to daven for each other…

    Well, I’m davennig…a saw a website called divreichizuk…

    maybe try that, I haven’t looked into it so much…

    There should be a list of people who are not ill but need tefillos…but that’s everyone, no?

    #1016986

    LF-

    1) I mentioned that I didn’t type it. I got the text from two different websites.

    2) I definitely don’t know all of shas. But I do know a bunch, because I don’t wast time working out every k’lomar in Rashi and every v’od in tosfos. In general I am opposed to the over-emphasis of iyun. I’ll rant about that some other time though. I don’t want to hijack this thread.

    2 For length of days, and years of life, And peace, will they add to thee. 3 Let not kindness and truth forsake thee; Bind them about thy neck, write them upon the table of thy heart; 4 So shalt thou find grace and good favour In the sight of God and man. 5 Trust in the LORD with all thy heart, And lean not upon thine own understanding. 6 In all thy ways acknowledge Him, And He will direct thy paths. 7 Be not wise in thine own eyes; Fear the LORD, and depart from evil; 8 It shall be health to thy navel, And marrow to thy bones. 9 Honour the LORD with thy substance, And with the first-fruits of all thine increase; . 10 So shall thy barns be filled with plenty, And thy vats shall overflow with new wine. 11 My son, despise not the chastening of the LORD, Neither spurn thou His correction; 12 For whom the LORD loveth He correcteth, Even as a father the son in whom he delighteth. 13 Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, And the man that obtaineth understanding. 14 For the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver, And the gain thereof than fine gold. 15 She is more precious than rubies; And all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared unto her. 16 Length of days is in her right hand; In her left hand are riches and honour. 17 Her ways are ways of pleasantness, And all her paths are peace. 18 She is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her, And happy is every one that holdest her fast. 19 The LORD by wisdom founded the earth; By understanding He established the heavens. 20 By His knowledge the depths were broken up, And the skies drop down the dew. 21 My son, let not them depart from thine eyes; Keep sound wisdom and discretion; 22 So shall they be life unto thy soul, And grace to thy neck. 23 Then shalt thou walk in thy way securely, And thou shalt not dash thy foot. 24 When thou liest down, thou shalt not be afraid; Yea, thou shalt lie down, and thy sleep shall be sweet. 25 Be not afraid of sudden terror, Neither of the destruction of the wicked, when it cometh; 26 For the LORD will be thy confidence, And will keep thy foot from being caught.

    Remember that life is a roller coaster ride. If you go really, really low down, take that as a sign that someday- hopefully soon, you will go soaring up to the sky. Also remember that if Hashem gives you something hard to deal with, that means that He KNOWS you can deal with it- with your head held up high, AND smile!

    As was recommended already, check out divreichizzuk.com. That website is AMAZING!!!!! I can’t even tell you how many sleepless nights ive spent surfing that site, crying like a baby. Whoever started that site is gonna get some real good stuff after 120.

    If you’re sad cuz you’ve made lots of mistakes, then i would recommend watching the shiur “everyone deserves a second chance” by Rabbi Bentzion Klatzko. It’s available on TorahAnytime.

    Most importantly, daven. Know that Hashem is waiting for you to call to Him. He cares about what you’re going through and He is hoping that you will succeed in surviving it.

    Also, read this thread: http://www.theyeshivaworld.com/coffeeroom/topic/inspiring-letter

    Keep your head up and smile cuz Hashem loves you!

    A Psalm of David. The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.

    2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures; He leadeth me beside the still waters.

    3 He restoreth my soul; He guideth me in straight paths for His name’s sake.

    4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for Thou art with me; Thy rod and Thy staff, they comfort me.

    5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies; Thou hast anointed my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

    6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; And I shall dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.

    PulsingFlower: It’s just that I don’t think Rabbi/Mr/Mrs/Miss/Ms Nony Mouse needs all that for some chizuk. People who come here to read and recharge chizuk (me the most) will usually appreciate the kind our resident Rebbitzen (Bubby) wrote. Short and very sweet, heartfelt and uplifting. The long megilla is over-emphasis of iyun! (couldn’t resist that)

    And (to hijack this thread ?? ?????) it’s not wasting time working out every k’lomar in Rashi and every v’od in tosfos. It’s giving tremendous honor both to Rashi & Tosfos, and to the Nosain HaTorah Himself. It’s a living practical illustration and demonstration that every word and letter in the Torah is laden with meaning. No waste at all. That’s called true ??????. I’m not sure, but I think one who delves deeply to really understand, in earnest (not for pilpul or honors, or even mind-sharpening exercising) will not lose out in knowing “a bunch” too.

    #1016992

    I was responding to her/his request. S/He didn’t ask for me to tell him about how hashem loves her/him. S/He asked for quotes and pesukim, so that’s what I gave her/him.

    #1016993

    But in reality, you are probably correct. I may have just simply forgotten how to speak normally. I need to get my head out of the bais a little and learn to relate to others. Your point is well taken.

    Pulsing Flower: There has been a longstanding machlokes in our mesorah over the superiority of sinai (bekius) vs. oiker harim (be’iyun). Please don’t relegate an entire tzad of the machlokes to being a mere “waste of time”– chas vesholom! Aderaba, one who does not spend time working through sugyas and pouring over the rishonim and acharonim will have missed out on a fascinating and really important chelek of Torah and avodas hashem.

    If you are sefaradi, then I would definitely understand why you prefer bekius, since you are simply following in the footsteps of rav ovadia zt”l. If not, I see you no reason for you to use such harsh fighting words against beiyun, which is such an important aspect of talmud torah and yeshiva learning. I think you mean well, so would you mind being masbir your puzzling statement.
