My music career has spanned over better than five decades. I sing. It's my weapon, my gifting. My deepest fear IS NOT that I am inadequate. My deepest fear IS THAT I am powerful beyond measure. It is my light, not any darkness, that frightens others.
I am a child of God and playing small has never served this world. There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around me. I am meant to shine.
Through music, I was born to make manifest the glory of God that is within me. As I let my light shine, I give others permission to do the same. All I want is my presence to automatically liberate others to change their focus, to dwell on the things in life that are important, because 'To much is given, much is required (Luke 12:48).'
I don't know where I'm going from here but I know it won't be boring. I do know that “when I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, 'I used everything you gave me'”— Erma Bombeck
