What you are about to read is an inspirational poem written by MARIANNE WILLIAMSON. I’m pretty sure you must have heard it somewhere or read it somewhere too. I’ve always seen lines from the poem in different articles. Fortunately for me, I got the whole package last week Saturday in my Public-speaking club. I was overwhelmed at the wonderful thoughts of the write up. I felt as though it was written specifically for me and I am sure each and every one of you will feel that way after reading.

This message is for you. Read a line. STOP. Take a breath. THINK. Read a line. Let the simple words of this poem change something in you.

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.

RHEMA!!!! someone is touched…… go out and shine.. step outa that comfort zone and SHINE… THRIVE.. BLOOM….
