Songs to Invoke Faith
Experience the Journey
The word faith gets bandied about quite often. It is an easy marker of how much a person wants you to believe, what they believe, when they let the word pass from their lips. There is an oft used definition, according to Merriam-Webster, of faith:
“Firm belief in something for which there is no proof.”
However, I prefer to rely on the first definition, listed in the same dictionary:
“Allegiance to duty or a person."
This is the strength of faith.
Faith in a higher being can be as beautiful as a needed embrace, or it can be the blindfold you use to justify any ignorance. You will be either comforted by the embrace, or blinded by the sight of it. Therefore, I urge you to choose your faith carefully.
