I was just getting ready to walk out the door when something (or someone) tapped me on the shoulder and told me to write you.

I know it sounds crazy, but then again who am I question the creator of the universe when he’s moving in my life….

Anyways, the message that I felt called to share is simple…

“You are More Powerful than you Realize, and it’s time for you to Wake Up to your Unlimited Brilliance  because your Playing Small doesn’t help Anyone, … Anymore!”

Now if you’ve known me for any time now, you’d know that I very rarely email “Faith Based Messages” but since I’m playing the same game you are, I feel like it’s time to “up the anti.”

And if for any reason, you’re offended by hearing about thing like “Faith”, “God”, or even “Jesus” then I’d suggest you unsubscribe to my emails because you’ll probably get offended at some point.

But if you’re reading this email and feel a “gentle nudge” to Step Up the Faith in your life, then stay tuned, because I feel like the best is yet to come!

God is Good,

Gabe Strom

    Good word Gabe. It takes some boldness to say what you believe in. I know I have had the same debates in my head over what to do with my new website launching next month on this very thing. Thanks for the inspiration.

    Hey man, this is your world and it's your life. People need to definitely unsubscribe if they're offended by “Faith”, “God” or “Jesus.”

    …which means, shoot, I'm not on your list! I'll be looking for more great posts from you, Gabe. Thanks for this post.

    Just saw this post and I love it. I've learned that my audience will either love all of me or none of me. It's on them which they decide. Either way, keep being you and keep being real whether it's business or faith!

    Love this post! God also taps me on the shoulders often. Well… I use the term God Bricks! He throws them at me! Many Blessings! ~Michelle Colon-Johnson

    Totally reminded me of this quote  – 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 and fabulous?” 
    Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. 
    Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. 
    There’s nothing enlightening about shrinking so that 
    Other people won’t feel insecure around you. 
    We were born to 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 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.

    Funny – I was tapped on the shoulder and told to read your blog one among thousands floating through me twitter stream. I had no idea about your Faith Gabe, and I suddenly can’t WAIT to hear more. Thank you for encouraging me to see your faith and raise you a RT.

    Its impossible not to offend someone…we have the illusion of “Political Correctness”, the goal is, we all need to be understanding & accepting…if not, each of us has the choice to walk away….sending you my love & prayers Gabe…looking forward to hearing great things for 2012

    So arrogant! You make so many assumptions. You first assume that god cares about the earth when there are billions of planets in the universe. Then you assume that of the billions of people in the world he specifically comes and taps YOU on the shoulder to tell you to worship yourself even more. B.S. God doesn’t even care when millions of people die in earthquakes, doesn’t give two shits about 9/11, and doesn’t care when millions of people die from malnutrition or AIDS in Africa. This same god who advocates slavery, rape, and murder ALL across the Bible apparently cares just enough to come tap some entitled American on the shoulder. Yes the world revolves around YOU. It sounds crazy because it is crazy.

    Then you assume that out of the thousands of gods that have existed across history yours is somehow the right one. That just because you were indoctrinated about Jesus as a kid automatically makes him the RIGHT god. What if you had grown up in ancient Rome and had been taught about Zeus. I suppose you’d be in hell right now.Finally you assume that the statement ‘god created the universe’ has any meaning. If god created the universe who then created god. Think about it. God answers nothing.Then you probably assume that living forever even has any value. Only with finite time does value exist. If you lived forever everything would become irrelevant… insignificant.OF course you’re just going to keep your god glasses on REAL tight. You’ll keep ignoring how evil god is in the Bible, you’ll keep making logical fallacies, you’ll never lift your god lenses long enough to look at the facts objectively. You’ll use confirmation bias to ensure that you only take things seriously if they confirm YOUR views. You might even take this as a “test of faith.” Yes, this is the devil writing right now. He’s here to tempt you while god idly sits by.  UGH.

    I don’t understand all the capitals in the quote. Playing Small, Wake Up, Unlimited Brillance. With or without a god, live your own life and do what you want to do.
