It is so easy to criticize, so easy to condemn. Anyone can refuse, anyone can say ‘no.’ It takes no sacrifice, no character, no responsibility to say ‘no.’ But saying ‘yes,’ saying ‘Yes, I do believe’ or ‘Yes, I choose to have faith over skepticism.’ Now that’s not easy. That takes courage, strength, commitment, adherence, perseverance, and accountability. To have faith and to believe is one of the hardest things to do. But in the uncertainty of life, you can choose to doubt or to have faith. You can choose to live easy or live strong. You can choose to live in the death of negativity or in the life of hope. I choose to have faith. I choose to breathe life.
It would be that we’re all OK
And not to worry ‘cause worry is wasteful
And useless in times like these
I won’t be made useless
I won’t be idle with despair
I will gather myself around my faith
For light does the darkness most fear.” —
