Hold On! Yesterday’s Glow
Meshivat Nefesh #18
Rebbe Nachman taught: “You need to always be in a state of joy and serve G-d from that place, even if you sometimes fall from the level that you’d like to be on—meaning, even if you’ve done wrong. The way to pick yourself up is by encouraging yourself with the spiritual light that you’ve experienced in the past, the glow of the good days. You can tap into that light and it can give you strength and vitality even now, so that you can start again and get back to where you want to be.”
Please help me to remember
the powerful glow of my good yesterdays.
I know that if I’ll just allow myself to feel it
by remembering how it used to shine for me,
I’ll be able to restore my soul to its rightful place.
