This Too Shall Pass

I hope that this poem by Helen Steiner Rice will inspire you and I whom are all equaled in the Universe and whom are always loved. We will sometimes face challenges which we may think to be beyond us. However, bear in mind always that we will not be given a challenge which we cannot handle; we will always overcome these challenges to become a better person. And while we are caught in the undercurrent and seemed to be swept away, let us all continue to hold strongly the faith that ‘This too shall pass …’ As the sun set to signify the end of the day and that a new day is certain.

This Too Shall Pass by Helen Steiner Rice

If I can endure for this minute
Whatever is happening to me,
No matter how heavy my heart is
Or how dark the moment may be –

If I can remain calm and quiet
With all the world crashing about me,
Secure in the knowledge God loves me
When everyone else seems to doubt me –

If I can but keep on believing
What I know in my heart to be true,
That darkness will fade with the morning
And that this will pass away, too –

Then nothing in life can defeat me
For as long as this knowledge remains
I can suffer whatever is happening
For I know God will break all of the chains

That are binding me tight in the darkness
And trying to fill me with fear –
For this is no night without dawning
And I know that my morning is near.

    Hi BK – such an appropriate poem for yesterday – thanks for posting the words and reminding us all.

    We can get through everything .. and our strength is always far more than we realise .. and strength comprises so much .. compassion, tolerance, love and understanding ..

    With blessings – Hilary

      @ Hilary, it is indeed appropriate poem for yesterday; I didn’t have the intention to make it a post for 911. It just seemed like an inspiring poem to share. However, as I was reading it, I realised how it fit exactly. Good to see you here always.

    If it weren’t for the belief that all things happen for a reason I would not be alive today.
    No matter how dark life can get, it’s when we look up to the skies and see the glory of God that we get the strength to keep going.
