This too will pass away

If I can endure for the moment

whatever is happening to me

no matter how heavy my heart is or

or how dark the moment might be–

If I can remain calm and quiet

with all my world crashing around me

secure in the knowledge that 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 away 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 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.

Helen Steiner Rice

Psalm 46:1- God is our refuge and our strength, a very present help in trouble.
John 16:33- These things I have spoken unto you, that in me you might have peace. In the world you should have tribulation; but be good cheer I have overcome the world.
Psalm 32:7- You are my hiding place; you will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance.
Romans 8:28- And we know in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to his purpose.
