Commit your ways to the Lord, trust in Him and He will bring it to pass (Psalm 37:5) We are living in a strange times, strange unprecedented, unseen, unheard of. The pandemic crises has changed the global world order. It has changed our life style the way we think, the way we feel, the way we perceive things. It has challenged us as never before. The Covid crises has created new human being out of all of us. It has made us dip deep into our self and find resources, skills, strength, and levels of resilience that we never knew that we possessed. In tough times like this it is difficult to find hope, let me assure you of one thing that you will sail through. You will come out on top, the reason. I know nothing is permanent.
It is believed that once an Eastern Monarch challenged his wise men to invent him a sentence
which would be true and appropriate in all times and situations. They presented him the words: “and
this too, shall pass away”. The wisdom of a lifetime stored in the meaning of this simple phrase.
Nothing lasts forever, good or bad. All things will pass, even the troubled moments also have Sixty
Seconds. Since there is no permanent happiness in life, there is also no permanent sorrow. Understand
the dynamics of life and live life to the fullest. In three words I can sum up everything I’ve
learned about: It goes on, says Robert Frost.
No matter how dark the night at dawn light does break in and its day.
No matter how intense the storm, it will pass and come to an end.
There is a rhythm to nature and no matter how much we choose to ignore or alter it, nature has a rhythm, a pattern and then good news is it sticks to it. So no matter how long this takes let’s be assured that ‘This too shall pass’. We can choose to see a crises as the end or see the same crises as an opportunity. Tough times like this. It is important how we respond because we in turn are teaching our children how to respond. Our resilience during these challenging times will be tested not only by how we combat the spread of the virus out also how we make the best of this situation. The coronavirus is definitely as castrastophe but it doesn’t have to mean the Apocalypse. We vaccinate ourselves so as to increase our immune system. Let us also get a dose of Emotional Vaccination by staying positive during this pandemic period. Learn new ways to immunize yourselves from your inner emotional turmoil by having great faith in the Almighty and powerful God. It is in such situation as this that we learn and grow the most. Despite the dark clouds of gloom a silver lining will emerge which will be bright enough to bring hope and a promise that ‘This too shall pass’.
