The Power of Belief

Sometimes the simplest, yet most complete advice and wisdom comes to us in the form of children’s stories and songs.  Take a moment to read this short passage below and enjoy the quick soundtrack at the end! Pass on the power in BELIEF!

Believe In Yourself dee dee bridgewater

If you believe
Within your heart you’ll know
That no one can change
The path that you must go Believe what you feel
And know you’re right, because
The time will come around
When you’ll say it’s yours

Believe that you can go home;

Believe you can float on air
Then click your heels three times,
If you believe
Then you’ll be there
Believe in yourself, right from the start
Believe in the magic that’s inside your heart
Believe all these things, not because I told you to
But believe in yourself;
If you believe in yourself
Just believe in yourself as I believe in you!
– Dee Dee Bridgewater as Glinda, the Good Witch in The Wiz (the original Broadway production)

We Are All Wonderfully Made

Standard

“For you created my inmost being;
    you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
    your works are wonderful,
    I know that full well.
 My frame was not hidden from you
    when I was made in the secret place,
    when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
 Your eyes saw my unformed body;
    all the days ordained for me were written in your book
    before one of them came to be.” – Psalm 139 :13-16 (New International Version)
