In life, we can either let our experiences make us bitter, or we can channel that feeling towards being a good example in order to improve things.

Always a dawn

A couple shabbosim ago, I heard Rebbitzen Twersky speak at a certain shul that was having a shabbatan. She was talking about y'tziat mitzrayim and pesach and gave many beautiful messages. One of them was that when we are in a hard situation that looks hopeless and feel like things will never change, we should not despair, but remember that just like the Jews in Egypt who were in the 49th level of impurity were redeemed and taken out of there, so too even if we're in situation that is very bleak, there is still hope. - And she said that this story gives us a message for all time that there is always hope.

Thanks for Chizuk words, we could sure use some of those right now.

We should all be zoche to moshiach very soon "Maybe this year we will do our seder in Yerusalayim".

Powerful message that we need to remember all the time.
Thanks for sharing!
that maybe the reason why we need to remember yetzias mitsrayim every day of our life, to remember this message!

Definitely an important message to keep in mind but not easy.

Beautiful message, and certainly useful as who never felt hopeless at some point?

beautiful message
Actually the Ohr Hachayim says that before Moshiach comes we will actually fall into the 50th level of Tumah in order to be able reach the 50th level of Kedusha when the Geulah comes.
