I was listening again to one of my favorite songs, "The Prayer."  Jessica Sanchez of American Idol fame beautifully sings this particular version of the song. I wondered about the words, "Give us faith, so we'll be safe."  What do those words mean exactly? Certainly having faith is no guarantee that life will always work out as we wish it would. Bad things will continue to happen to good people. So, then, how does having faith keep us safe?  It is faith that propels us forward regardless of the constant challenges life throws at us; faith that helps us get up when we fall; faith that encourages us to believe there's something bigger out there than we are, even when we are feeling oh, so small. It is faith that gives us hope:  Hope for a brighter tomorrow, even when some of our todays may be dark.

Choose Faith
