Power Beyond Measure

Woohooo made it through the 30-days of blogging. Now that I'm back into the swing of daily blogging, it is delightful to also be starting a new month of love and good cheer--December. This month, some of my friends have graciously agreed to blog their thoughts and lives about what it is like in ministry, living godly daily, how we can share the love of God through kind acts, and just loving each other. To celebrate all year, we are awaring 365 Love Awards to those who participate. If you want to join the share-care, email me at This is about loving people, sharing, and caring.

This poem illustrates the purity of love, the depth to which we each may rise and shine no matter what the status of life, or the chaos around us--love is a position of victory against inseemingly insurmountable odds. Be an odds maker, share your story, give someone hope.

Our Deepest Fear
by Marianne Williamson

"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 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 your shrinking so that other people will not feel insecure around you.We are all meant to shine as children do.

We are all meant to 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

Personal testimony is what we as Christians are created to do. We are to share how God's love got us through the darkest days of my life. I believe this is a wonderful idea and look forward to participating. Blessings!

BTW if you don't mind I would like to create a post on my blog informing others about the share-care writings. Just let me know if this is all right with you.

Grace and Peace
