In each of us lies the seeds to be more than we thought we could be. This video is a short clip from the EMwomen (Empowering Women)”EMerge” Conference where I sang my best selling song, “Cinderella, There Is Greatness In You”.
When I wrote Cinderella, A Dream Come True, it was a miracle of sorts. I had just flown back from speaking on numerous stages in Trinidad and doing a massive concert. That day, at that concert, I felt led for the first time EVER, to tell my testimony of abuse, heartbreak and suicidal depression. I shared how God rescued me from a very dark spot and put me on a path to use my life and my voice to be a source of hope for others. There was such a powerful response of people stepping forward to escape their own bondage that night.
One young woman, came to the stage at the end of the concert crying almost uncontrolably. She said, “I came here tonight with this gun and the intent to kill myself after your concert. You see, I am 16 years old and I have been raped and abused every day by the men that live in my house. The shame and pain have been unbearable and the only thought of peace I had was in the thought of killing myself so I didn’t have to face it anymore. But tonight, your story has changed me. I believe you. I believe that if you can make it….I CAN MAKE IT TOO!”
For many years, I was ashamed of the scars of my past. My hurt, my mistakes, my failures left me believing that God could never use me and that any hope of being a voice of inspiration to others was over. But God healed my heart and showed me HIS plan for my life. He showed me that He is not looking for a PERFECT vessel, but he searches the world over for WILLING vessels.
When I landed back in Canada after that trip to Trinidad, I pulled into a gas station to fill up my car. They were offering a FREE Disney book of your choice if you filled up at their station. I chose Cinderella. And as they filled up my car, I read that little paper book and thought of that young girl in Trinidad. As I pulled through the station’s car wash, I cried and asked God to turn my ashes into a story that He could use forever.
And that is when the words of this song came flooding out of my soul. What would normally take hours, weeks or even months to write a complete song, I wrote Cinderella, A Dream Come True in 12 minutes flat. It was as if I was merely holding the pen for a much bigger voice. To this day, this song has positioned me in more settings to speak and sing than any other song I’ve written. This song is what I was asked to sing at President Clinton’s Innaugural Prayer Breakfast. This song is what allowed me to sell THOUSANDS to the directors of Mary Kay Corporation and see thousands of women’s lives dramatically changed. This song has positioned me in some of the most amazing countries and rooms of influence I believe because it is a message of hope for the hurting.
I pray this message will help you recognize that God has a plan for you and YOUR STORY. YOUR BRAND, your message, and your life have the potential of leaving a monumental imprint on this world. There is greatness in you.
