Our Greatest Fear...


"Our greatest fear is not that we are inadequate 
but that we are powerful beyond measure.

We ask ourselves who am I to be 
brilliant, gorgeous, handsome, talented?
Actually who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
We were born to manifest the glory of God within us.

It is not just in some; it is in everyone.
And, as we let our own light shine, 
we unconsciously give others permission to do the same."

One of my absolute favorite quotes ever. I saw it posted on fb again. SO REAL! SO TRUE! We are children of God. As we live in that. We liberate others.

Here is a clip from Coach Carter. AH! I could watch this over and over again.


"Perfect love casts out fear" 1 John 4:18

good stuff Ri! Right now my biggest fear is, that medical expenses will send us into financial ruin!! I am praying for the faith to believe that God will provide like he always does. How soon we forget his faithfulness! =)
