Do you believe?

Two songs have captured the hearts of our nation in the past few months and no, it's not the national anthem, which the Conservatives briefly contemplated changing!
  • I Believe- Canada’s ‘other anthem’ for the 2010 Olympics 
  • What Faith Can Do- #1 single on Christian Radio- on the charts for 24 weeks in a row
It’s interesting that both these songs talk about believing.  There are subtle differences- who and what to we put our faith in?- that are to be noted.

Sometimes when I feel I’ve had enough
and I feel like giving up
…be all I can be
…together we’ll fly
I believe in the power of you and I

(I Believe)
Everybody falls sometimes
Gotta find the strength to rise
…Life is so much more than what your eyes are seeing
You will find your way if you keep believing
…dreams…hope… miracles…prayers
(What Faith Can Do)

What I can see and strongly identify with is our need to BELIEVE, against all odds.  I’m even more inspired to look up with eyes of faith, to the ONE who gave His life so I could have a future and a hope.  Music always lifts my spirits and these lyrics help me soar.
I’m also challenged to share “the hope that is in me” even more boldly.  
I believe!
