Fear. Fearful. Fearless. Righteous Fear. – Jacqueline T. Hill | The Living Acts | On Writing, Creativity, Writing Your Books & Content

Fear. Fearful. Fearless. Righteous Fear.

My fiance texted a small portion of Nelson Mandela’s speech to me the other day. While I was preparing my classroom, the words mandated a pause. The sun became still that instant. The Lord whispered, “watch, pray and listen.” Many truths unfolded the remainder of this week. I can feel Abba pushing me to run, again. –Not to run from “the enemy,” but as David. David’s position shifted each time he ran from Saul. Although he had three chances to “kill” Saul, his character, integrity and love for the Father kept him sound. Samuel actually exposed David via black and white tattoo marks on a scroll. David’s tongue became a pen, and we learned his nature, fears, struggles and thoughts through many psalms.

Our Greatest Fear
from Nelson Mandela’s Speech

“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. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t 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’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.”
