Do you find yourself sometimes hiding and shrinking back? I do. Often. It is hard for me to shine.
I prefer to avoid any attention, good or bad. It is hard for me to put myself out there because any attention triggers fear in me. I never want to be the best or the worst. I want to be sandwiched in the safety of the middle. It is easier for me to hide, lay low and fly under the radar.
But God did not create us to shrink back, hide, and fly below the radar. He created us to SHINE!

I also created this wallpaper for my phone to remind me to SHINE:
