South Africa Songs At Centre Street Church #1
Our Deepest Fear
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 famous?
Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn’t 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.
From President Nelson Mandela's 1994 Inaugural Speech
Good bye my Zulu friends!
May God grant a safe journey home and may you continue to radiate His Grace.
To those who are also now to travel to South Africa with them.
My prayers are with you, for your success in all the good things that you will do in His Name.
God bless all of you and if we do not meet again soon.
I am certain that we will all meet in Heaven.
With love from,
A knight in thy service of the King of Kings...
