I get so frustrated sometimes, it makes me cringe. Here I am minding my own business in public and someone starts talking to me.
“I’m quiet, and over here not bothering a soul. Why do they want to talk to me?”
I finally confessed my fears to my family member “I never wanted to be in the spotlight – but it looks like life will not let me be.”
Over the phone, I hear a soft sigh, and then they finally say: “you just have a natural light about you. People want to know why you are so happy and how you got to where you are in life.”
Even though I want to argue – I can’t. Here I am a female in America. I look like I found the key to a happy life. People have no idea that there is so much I want to do and accomplish.
My spotlight is not my own, it all belongs to God. I am just a vessel to shine his righteousness. Like everyone, I have flaws, secrets, and tragedies that should make my heart harden. Yet I love and give with my all. I am just here to spread the love he has given to me. Anyone can find God’s light. You’re not too big or small to find him. We all have light, we just have to uncover it and shine it brightly.
