"I Believe in Love"


"I BELIEVE IN LOVE"

How long will my prayers seem unanswered?
Is there still faith in me to reach the end?
I'm feeling doubt - I'm losing faith;
But giving up would cost me everything.
So I'll stand in the pain and silence,
And I'll speak to the dark night;
I believe in the sun even when it's not shining,
I believe in love even when I don't feel it,
And I believe in God even when He is silent....

And I, I believe!

Though I can't see my stories ending,
That doesn't mean the dark night has no end;
It's only here that I find faith,
And learn to trust the one who writes my days;

So I'll stand in the pain and silence,
And I'll speak to the dark night.
I believe in the sun even when it's not shining;
I believe in love even when I don't feel it,
And I believe in God even when He is silent...

And I, I believe.

No dark can consume Light;
No death greater than this life.
We are not forgotten,
Hope is found when we say
Even when He is silent.

I believe in the sun even when it's not shining;
I believe in love even when I don't feel it,
And I believe in God even when He is silent.

And I, I believe.
----Barlow Girl

I "borrowed this from Mel, who, without a doubt, has one of the strongest testimonies I've read in a long time. Her beloved was killed in Iraq - they were yet to be married. She has attended weddings of friends who just "don't get it." Her hurt and pain have not left her without the one greatest blessing of mankind: HOPE.
