This Too Shall Pass!

On January first, 2020 we all collectively celebrated the New Years—specifically, we ushered in the start of a new decade—the big 2020.

Many held high hopes for 2020. Goals and expectations were written, and or spoken into existence. In fact, many began to put to practice and develop new habits the following day with hopes of achieving said goals and aspirations.

Then came the pandemic.

Routines were dismantled, lifestyles has changed, and the goals and aspirations that once seemed achievable have suddenly seem unattainable. Lives are lost, families are locked down, many are unemployed, finances are challenged, and many were emotionally and mentally unprepared for the unexpected turn of events.

Take heart brothers and sisters. Run back, if you can, to that hope you once held on to at the crack of dawn on January 1st, 2020. Bring back, if you can, that joy you felt when what was left of December 31st 2019, became January 1st, 2020. Dig deep, if you can, into the happiness that was felt when the clock ticked 12:00am January 1st, 2020.

The current climate of today should not dictate your attitude and mindset about life—though it’s easier said than done—trust me, I know. But, we must remain steadfast and hold on tightly to our confessions at the peak of the New Year. We must not fall short of singing praises to the Most High, and speaking words of affirmation to ourselves. With so much free time and idle moments, it becomes much easier for negative thoughts to creep in—be present and proactive to block such thoughts. It’s hard enough to wake up with no where to go—it’s even much harder to wake up with no where to go and a mind filled with negative thoughts.

What we face currently, is a temporary condition that years from now we will look back and reflect on the changes it sparked.

We must, now more than ever, maintain a positive outlook.

This too shall pass.

  4. Well said. That is life. i once watched a movie where they said life is like a ride on a Ferris wheel, at some point you’ll feel like you are on top of the world and then the next moment you are hitting the rock bottom but the good thing about hitting the rock bottom is that there is only one way left to go, UP. This is our rock bottom and it too shall come to pass.

  9. This too shall pass because our hope is in Jesus Christ. There are so many great intentions we have but this pandemic came along. I believe the good about it is to help us set our priorities right and be sober minded.
    Nice writing.
