"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?' 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 others won't feel insecure around you. We were all meant to shine as children do. We were all born to make manifest the glory of God that's 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."
-Nelson Mandela

Look at the stars tonight.
The twinkles in God’s eyes.
Chase the son tomorrow,
Reach for the blue in the sky.

Wait not for others to move.
Shine like you were made to.
Lead, love, guide, protect,
And people will follow you.

A beautiful morning is coming
When all the saints will stand.
You will be in the midst of them
Running into His hands.

I know He’s the king of you dreams.
I see it in the way
You worship Him with all you have
And how solemnly you pray.

Your love is great for Him
Because He is holy still.
He leads you through the valleys
And atop the hills.

I know you’re forever grateful
Just by the way you live.
The songs you write inspire me
And your blessing, God will give.
