I Will Be

I initially heard Wynona (Judd) sing this beautiful, inspiring and uplifting song on an episode of “Army Wives.” Although the episode and the song were intended to address issues of domestic abuse in the military and in general, it is obvious to me that the song and its message have universal appeal. Life is difficult, for some, more often than not. This song serves as a reminder that  nothing and no one can harm your true self. In spite of every difficulty, you will be–stronger, wiser and far better for standing up to and facing those challenges. 


I Will Be, by Wynona 

         Been caught in a downpour of a rain of stones

Felt like an exile in the world I had known

So I sought the shelter of my own soul

And stayed inside 

I found no comfort in placing blame

I saw the hope that lay just beyond the pain

The past is a prison and I won’t wear those chains

And I won’t hide, oh no


I will be here

I will be strong

I’ll face my fears 

When the night is long

And still go on

I will be brave

I will be bold

Follow my faith

To a higher road

And I’m not there yet

But I will be

I could choose to keep my feet upon the beaten path

Never cross the open field for the one snake in the grass

But I’d rather risk my heart then never get the chance

To find my way, to find my way


I will be here

I will be strong

I’ll face my fears 

When the night is long

And still go on

I will be brave

I will be bold

Follow my faith

To a higher road

And I’m not there yet

But I will be

Warmest Blessings, lydia
