It is a line from an old praise song, but it conveys one of the deepest meaning about faith, "It is better to light just one little candle than to stumble in the dark." This means that our faith will serve as our light, which will guide us to the right path. This faith in God is not just a feeling of optimism in the face of life's difficulties, but this faith must be accompanied with action, patience, determination, and more prayers because Jesus said, "ask and you shall receive, seek and you shall find, knock and it shall be opened unto you."
The lighted candle is one image of the Holy Spirit. Keep it burning brightly and keep the gifts of the Holy Spirit alive in our hearts.
