I had decided that the Inspiration Monday post would be all about love. Not only the love of someone else, but also the love we show and give ourselves. †But God put something else on my heart and I decided to share it for today. †I have been encountering in my own life that I sometimes feel powerless. I want to get my business off the ground but I don’t have enough money. I want to have time to do things that for myself, but my other obligations make it hard. †I don’t like to see people unhappy or sad, especially when I can see so much potential in them, and I try my best to help them see it. †Sometimes we have to let go of things, people or thoughts so that we can live the life we are meant to live. Maybe we aren’t powerless, maybe it’s just that we are scared to let go. †As I pray for God to change me and help me grow as a person, I am beginning to realize that I have more power than I think (and I can’t save or help everybody!) My prayer everyday is for God to change me, make into a better person. I want to not only be able to see my potential and value I want to feel it in my soul. Power is not something that is given, it already belongs to us. I have shared this poem from Marianne Williamson before, it is my all time favorite and I feel that it’s so inspiring. I just had to share my favorite couple of lines from the poem to kick start your week.
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.† †Marianne Williamson
