“Faith is the bird that feels the light when the dawn is still dark.” – Rabindranath Tagore

There are some days when the challenges seem too much. You feel alone and abandoned. Those dark days can make you want to stay in bed, with the curtains drawn as you hide from the world while lacking the energy or the fight to get up and keep going.

When life gets you down, it is time to turn to your faith. Rely on your faith to garner the strength and energy you need to get through the tough times.
