Stop trying to downplay your gifts.
Stop trying to minimize your successes.
Stop trying to skim over your strengths with, “Oh, that was nothing.”
It was not nothing.
It was the spark of God within you.
It was who He created you to be shining bright.
It was what He called you to do coming forth into the world.
Don’t listen to the whiners, the discouragers, the critics, the-good-in-your-life-makes-me-feel-bad-crowd.
You have nothing to be sorry for, sister.
Those things aren’t a reason for an apology–they’re reasons for gratitude, celebration, and praise.
Hold your head high. Keep that joy in your heart. Let your light shine.
It’s the proper response to what God has done (and is doing) through you.
And if anyone tells you to tone it down–they can take it up with Him.
Let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. Matt. 5:16
