Each one of us is a divine child of God, who loves us infinitely and incomprehensibly. If we understand how magnificently God loves us, none of us would feel insecure, inferior, or incompetent. We would celebrate our lives, our gifts, and our blessings. We would experience greater peace.
Today, remember that you have infinite worth. You are created in God's image. He wants you to be happy. Let Him help you.
I really like Marianne Williamson's insights into the power and glory of each person. May her words inspire you to experience greater serenity today as you face the challenges that are part of everyday life.
Our Greatest Fear —Marianne Williamson
It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us
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 and fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.
There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other
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 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.
