Let Your Light Shine

“You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.”
-Matthew 5:14-16

I vowed that 2014 would be the year that I let my light shine. I’ve always done some type of performance art where I would physically be in the spotlight (on stage, on camera, etc.), but I’ve never really revealed my true self. I’m always biting my tongue or not taking an action for fear of what others might think, or say, or do. I realize that no one is holding me back but me, so I really want to work to break down this wall of “protection” I have around myself so that I can truly shine and be the person that God wants me to be. It’s okay to be great. It’s okay to love me and be me, unapologetically, and that’s what I want to do/be.

I found some songs that inspired me, and that I believe will help to encourage me along this journey and I thought I’d share them. Enjoy!
