Faith is a choice that you make every day;
to continue the journey when fear begs you to stay
Its in trusting, and hoping and acceptance as well
Its looking for heaven when you're walking through hell.
Faith has no ruler, no religion its master,
It whispers"-keep going" through death and disaster
Its the feeling of stillness, of peace, deep inside
Its shining a light on the darkness we hide.
Faith makes no promise, leaves no guarantee;
But it opens a door when you can't find the key
Offers comfort in moments unfamiliar and frightening
Gives reason to rainstorms, to the thunder and lightening.
Faith is not something to have or to loose
It was there every time you decided to choose;
Between life as you knew it, and the future uncertain
Between showing up or closing the curtain.
