{ Food for thought }

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.  Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.  It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.  We ask ourselves, "Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?"  Actually, who are you not to be?  You are a child of God.  Your playing small does not serve the world.  There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you.  We are all meant to shine, as children do.  We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.  It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone.  And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.  As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

This was on a friends facebook page and I have been pondering it ever since.

What do you think?
Do you fear being great?
Do you fear people? Or what they think of you?
Is God wanting to do amazing things in and thru you but fear has you crippled?
Is it false humility?

Still pondering...

 And here is a "sneak peak"
at what I was working on
this weekend!

I would love to hear your thoughts!
Happy Weekend to you all!
