Art: Shabbat Shalom

Do you think that G-d needs to eat? Does not the verse proclaim, "Should I hunger, I would not tell you, for the world, and all it contains, is Mine... Do I eat the flesh of bulls, or drink the blood of goats?" But it is not for My desire that you bring these offerings, [says G-d,] but for your own, as it is written (Leviticus 19:5), "For your own desire, you should offer it."
— Talmud, Menachot 110a

Sometimes you just can’t. When all desire is gone, there is no life, nothing left to propel you forward.

Yet, miraculously, even then you do what needs to be done. Not through your own power, but with the power of the One above, the One who made you and stood you on your feet so that you would do good in His world.
