This Too Shall Pass

We have all been there.  Seeing a picture of your ex with their new bf/gf.  Hearing that you didn’t get the promotion at work.  Finding out something tragic happened.  It never fails…you are left with that terrible nauseous feeling and the thought that it will never feel right again.

I was talking with my friend today who got a message from her ex-boyfriend.  She said it just left her with the pit in her stomach that made her feel like she couldn’t eat.

This too shall pass was all I could think to say.

Such simple words yet so much behind them if you think about what they really mean.  For every pain there is a season, and it will always pass.  It doesn’t mean it will go away quickly or ever be truly forgotten, but the sick feeling will eventually leave you. 

It’s always hard to picture feeling good again in those moments of experiencing the pit in your stomach.  But the Lord is faithful and takes the pain away eventually.  Always.

1 Peter 5:9-10   Resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same kinds of suffering are being experienced by your brotherhood throughout the world. And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you
