Gam Zu LeTova” (EVERYTHING THAT HAPPENS IS FOR THE BEST)

Filed under: Website Kvetching — Reb Moshe @ 1:05 am

TODAY’S MIRACLE STORY: I was in Meron for Rosh Chodesh & I spoke on my CELL phone a bit. Then I couldn’t find it and I was sure it fell out of my pocket as my coat just got a small whole. I asked security if anyone found it & then called my wife to see if anyone called her having dialed the last number I called. I put money in charity in the name of rebbe meir baal Hanaiss & prayed by Rebbe Shimon’s grave. It was getting dark, I took out my flashlight which I just happened to put back in my car today. I began retracing my steps and I couldn’t find it. Another person joined me in the search by flashlight. There was a lot of ground to cover as I also went to Hillel haTzaddik grave & had myself a cold drink at the free kitchen & then went and got some ice cream at the vendor down the street. After 1 hour of searching, I looked over at my new friend and thanked him very much for his time and effort, realizing that we had done all we could. I looked over to him thereafter and then to Heaven and with an honest troubled heart said loudly, “Gam Zu LeTova” (EVERYTHING THAT HAPPENS IS FOR THE BEST), in 20 seconds & approximately 10 steps I spotted my phone on the steps to the side where I had for but a minute. Untouched it was lit up with message, missed 56 calls as my wife was home calling and calling it for me for the entire hour hoping I would hear it as I retraced my steps.
This was clearly a lesson in the importance of accepting everything that happens in a good way and as soon as we do with a pure heart, the test is over and Hashem lets in all the light. The number 56 is gematria Bilvavecha, in your heart. Once in your heart you accept that all is from Hashem, you find all that you need.
