Hold On, This Too Shall Pass | Motivation

September 3, 2017

Happy Sunday, everyone. I hope ya’all are having a great weekend.

In life we all pass through tough and frustrating times, some of these tough times are under our control and some of them are not of our making. There is this saying “everything happens for a reason” and I happen to be a huge believer of it.

Though sometimes we all wish to know those reasons, but hey, we both know we can’t stand those reasons because they might hurt us than we can ever imagine! And that’s the major reason why God never give a reason to why everything happens.

As he says in the holy bible Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace not of evil, to give you an expected end” with his words, we all are assured that God doesn’t plan things to go wrong to us, all these happen to make us stronger and prepare for the best things he has in store for us as God’s timing is always perfect.


We always worry and fear of our lives; we think too hard of what will happen tomorrow, what will be of us if all these don’t pass! We forget that God is always holding our hands and bless the good and the evil, the just and the unjust. Sometimes people do bad things to us, make us sad, cry, depressed and frustrated with their words forgetting that we are human beings too and our feelings get hurt! Don’t fight it, God sees it and he will repay for you.

As he says in Isaiah 41:10-13 “Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy Lord: I will strengthen thee; yea I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness. Behold, all they that were incensed against thee shall be ashamed and confounded: and they shall be as nothing and they that strive with thee shall perish. Thou shalt seek them, and shalt not find them, even them that contended with thee; they that war against thee shall be as nothing as, and as a thing of nought. For I, the Lord thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto, fear not; I will help thee.”

All those we fear, they will be nothing when we give our hearts and faith to the Lord who will do everything for us and we have nothing to fear! Let us learn to ask for help from God, let us call him as he is always there for us, he will never leave us to drawn. Mathew 7:7-8 “ask and it shall be given to you; seek, and ye shall find; knock and it shall be opened unto you. For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth, and he that knocketh it shall be opened.”


Let us raise our heads high and receive the blessing from the Lord, our heavenly Father for he gives his blessing to the strongest soldiers. Arise for thy light is coming and the glory of the Lord is raised upon thee. And THIS TOO SHALL PASS. “What shall we then say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?

Everything that we go through will pass in time; everything has a beginning and an end. Everything has its seasons and so are the hard times and pain. Don’t let this pain break and change the person you are, learn from it, grow from it and allow it to transform you.

You are built to win, to shine, to be happy and live life to the fullest.

Here are some of my top 10 quotes to help you get through these tough times.

In the end, everything will be fine and if it is not, then it is not the end.

Remember that time when you said you wouldn’t get through that illness, sorrow, sadness and everything else but you came through it all? Yes, this time is no different! So, believe me, when I say Hold on, this too shall pass.

Until next time,
JS 🙂

    The quicker that we realize that God sometimes puts us through trying times for a reason that we may never know, the better off we all will be. This post has motivated me so much to just walk in faith as I have been. God bless you!
