This Too Shall Pass

I find myself searching...searching for an answer that I know is not there.. searching for strength that only god can provide and I find myself holding on to what I believe in and what I know to be right. I love the saying This Too Shall Pass... Well tonight I found the whole poem and wow what I break through for me. I read it and then read it again and cried and then once again read it. At this very moment this is my anthem the song that I an singing.

This Too Shall Pass

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 there is no night without dawning

And I know that my morning is near.
