WHEN YOU BELIEVE

It's been almost a whole month since I've blogged. FOR SHAME! It's not that I didn't have anything to say, it's that I haven't had the time to say it. I've said it before and I'll say it again, my studies are INSANE! Today I've finished my last assignment for the year, but exam prep starts now so I might be scarce for a few weeks yet.

Today I thought I'd just share some powerful lyrics with you. I'm currently reading Francine Rivers' Mark of the Lion series. One word: WOW. I can't get enough of it! I'm squeezing every free minute that I'm not working or studying into reading this, it's that good. You make time to read it. Right now I'm on book two, An Echo in the Darkness. I LOVED A Voice in the Wind, and I promise to do a review on it as soon as I can.

This weekend I again watched The Prince of Egypt and when the theme song came on I (a) again realised how much I love it, and (b) realised how appropriate the lyrics are for the characters of The Mark of the Lion series. This is such a spiritually fulfilling song. When you read the words, really read them and when you listen to the song, really listen!

WHEN YOU BELIEVE - Written by Stephen Schwartz & Kenneth Edmonds

Many nights we've prayed with no proof anyone could hear
In our hearts a hopeful song we barely understood
Now we are not afraid although we know there's much to fear
We were moving mountains long before we knew we could

There can be miracles, when you believe
Though hope is frail, it's hard to kill
Who knows what miracles you can achieve
When you believe, somehow you will
You will when you believe

In this time of fear when prayer so often proves in vain
Hope seems like the summer birds too swiftly flown away
Yet now I'm standing here, my heart so full I can't explain
Seeking faith and speaking words I never thought I'd say

There can be miracles, when you believe
Though hope is frail, it's hard to kill
Who knows what miracles you can achieve
When you believe, somehow you will
You will when you believe

They don't always happen when you ask
And it's easy to give in to your fears
But when you're blinded by your pain
Can't see your way clear throught the rain
A small but still resilient voice says hope is very near

There can be miracles when you believe
Though hope is frail, it's hard to kill
Who knows what miracles you can achieve
When you believe, somehow you will
You will when you believe

You will when you believe
Just believe...in your heart
Just believe
You will when you believe

Here's the video for you if you'd like to hear the song. It's worth it!
