The above quotation comes from Psalm 72 and refers to God. The idea behind it is that it is easy to thank God when everything is good (metaphorical morning), but we must praise God for sticking by us when times are bad as well (metaphorical night).
Recently I have been walking through some very tough times. First I was coming to terms all over again with the fact that I will never have biological children, and then came the thing with my sexual orientation and identity last week, and now is something much worse than either of those that cannot go public, but suffice to say it's bad.
But you know what? I trust God, and I know that God has me on the path I'm on for a reason. Even more than that, my trust in God lets me hold on to the knowledge that eventually, everything will be OK. There is meaning in suffering, and it doesn't last forever.
All that being said, I would cherish your prayers. Thanks!
And of course, a picture of "Jacob":
"Don't tell God how big your storm is; tell your storm how big your God is."
I believe in God.
I believe in God.

- I am a bipolar, Jewish young adult (had my Hebrew birthday, the one I count, and turned 23 this past January) who also suffers from Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy. I love life and I live for my best friends: they are my purpose and my reason for trying so hard. I remain passionately devoted to those I love; I will not let my disorders make me totally self-centered. I like to read, write, and sew. My Rabbinical school plans did not work out, and I am now hoping to go into the field of Early Childhood Education. Please note: I am currently maintaining only Carried in His Hands. Enjoy!
