It is often the case that as we go through our life path, we are faced with difficult times in which we may question our faith, God's love and his caring nature. Blinded by the dark forces among us, we may lose sight of important matters, fall short in our goals, and become overwhelmed by life's challenges. During times like these, it is often the case that we forget all of the goodness in the world, the love and positive energy that is also among us. Through this piece, I hope to encourage others to stand up, be strong and 'shine a light' right through all of their worries.
