Your faith may be remission, cure, treatment, religion.
Hold on to it and it will sustain you. My faith is in you.
Blind Willy Johnson (not Blues, strictly, but let's not worry) had a lifelong faith in God. He was born in about 1902 and deliberately blinded by his stepmother at the age of seven. He was a blind black man living in Texas. All his material was religous and his faith sustained him.
I love the Blues. His musical legacy and that of many others endure to help me endure now. And then there's reggae: Peter Tosh (murdered), Bob Marley (cancer).
