This Too Shall Pass

Don’t let your troubles get you down.

Genghis Khan, the 13th century Mongol conqueror, asked his philosophers to come up with a truth that would always be unchangeable. Thinking on it for a while, they came to their leaders with this quote: “It too shall pass.”

This reminds me of a dear black lady who was asked by her pastor what her favorite verse of Scripture was and she said: “And it came to pass.” God in His mercy never gives us more than we are able to bear.
