Episode 2 - Eliezer Braun - Hashem is always in "front" of us

"Hashem gave us a whole life of ups and downs. There's ups and there's downs, but it's so important to remember: Hashem is always in" front" of us, even if we don't see Him." Excerpt from this week's episode of Grateful Warrior. Sometimes, life throws at what feels like insurmountable hurdles. What would you do, if nearest what is supposed to be the happiest day of your life, something... Unexpected happens? "Trying to be grateful for what we have and realizing we're in Hashem's hands, watching over and leading us along our way" says Eliezer Braun, today's Grateful Warrior.

Welcome back to Episode 2! Today, we're lucky to have a wonderful guest named Eliezer Braun. Eliezer is probably one of the strongest hand cyclers you've ever met. That's because, circumstances that only Hashem could orchestrate, led to Eliezer receiving an amputation that would remove a cancerous tumor from his body. However, this is only the middle of the story. Join us us we discover how Eliezer and his kallah (then wife) faced their trials with admirable courage. Even when more (!) trials came along, Eliezer teaches us that it's all about our mindset to what Hashem put in front of us.


Challenges. We can't run away from them, can't escape them, and they seem to follow us wherever we go. Sometimes, these challenges turn into something more. They leave us with questions. "Why was I given this challenge, Hashem?! I can't handle this!" They leave us emotionally drained. "If it weren't for [this challenge], I would be so much happier…!" Most of all, they leave us searching. For answers, for truth, and for something inside ourselves to draw inspiration from.
