A couple of years ago someone told me I shouldn’t share my story of redemption because I should only share about Jesus. I shouldn’t desire the stage or a position of influence. These two “shouldn’t’s” really affected my heart. I experienced shame for these feelings I thought truly were from Holy Spirit. Recently I went through Sozo inner healing at Bethel Church in Redding, CA. At one point during the session the administrator told me to ask Holy Spirit what He felt about my desires. His response was that my birth was the beginning of ‘us’ and that I was meant to soar. Those two words have transformed my mind to believing that my story is His story. They are intertwined as two become one and that as I live united with Holy Spirit my life is made for His glory to be revealed. And influence is a gift. He desires His glory and love to be revealed to the world. Either one on one or from the stage in front of thousands.
So no matter where He has you- there is intimacy with Holy Spirit at your fingertips and His glory rests upon you to be revealed to whomever is in front of you.
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 is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people will not feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone and as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others. ~Marianne Williamson
This revelation of ‘soar’ brought me to a beautiful prophetic jewelry store in Redding, CA called Crowning Jewel to purchase the ring pictured below. (http://www.thecrowningjewels.com/) Wearing this ring is my way of receiving, believing and stewarding this word. What word has Holy Spirit given you?
