"This Too Shall Pass"
In the middle of the turbulence surrounding you
These trying times that are so hard to endure
In the middle of what seems to be your darkest hour
Hold fast your heart and be assured
[CHORUS:]
This too shall pass
Like every night that's come before it
He'll never give you more than you can bear
This too shall pass
So in this thought be comforted
It's in His Hands
This too shall pass
The Father knows the tears you cry before they fall
He feels your pain, His heart and yours are one
The Father knows that sorrow's heavy chains are strong
But with His strength, you'll overcome
[REPEAT CHORUS]
So set your eyes upon the mountain
And lift your hands up to the sky
And let His arms of love surround you
And take you to the other side
[REPEAT CHORUS]

    I know these things shall pass. Right now it feels like a trainload of problems and issues is running over me.

    Then get out of the way! I know, I know ... easier said than done. I feel like I've had more than my share of challenges in the past few months but if I don't tackle them then somebody else will have too and the lesson I get later on might be tougher. So just take it one day at a time, one issue at a time, one foot in front of the other. Any mountain can be climbed. I'll see you at the top!

  3. True enough - they shall pass. I know personally that when you're in the midst of dealing with any of these issues, it seems like it won't but we have to learn to stay focused on coming out.
