Heyyyyy! :) I was reading the scripture for the day in my bible app --
Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. Matthew 5:16
THIS is just want I needed. Sometimes, I struggle with allowing my light to shine freely - as some are offended if your light shines too bright. But the truth is:
Moreover, I'm asking you to stand with me. To shine bright today and everyday hereafter. I'm asking you to be great, so that others may glorify God. And I'm sure you are familiar with this quote:
“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 frightens us most. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and famous?' 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 people won't feel insecure around you. 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 all of us. And when 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.”
SHINE BRIGHT. I love you. Be empowered today.
