Lauryn Hill: Window of Opportunity (2000)
I don’t have an American dream, I have a dream. because my dream relates to the entire world. And to be honest with you, that is that the entire world have salvation. That the entire world have joy, that the entire world know God and have peace, and have his rest, and his happiness.
For me to limit that and say that’s an American dream, that would be far too limiting, that’s a dream for this entire world: that we really all have the presence of God in our lives because I can’t give anyone anything more.
God showed me I can sing songs about love, I can sing songs about me, and those people will enjoy those songs, but when they’re desperately, desperately in need of help — What will my music do? How will it help them? Will it redeem them? Will it save them? Will it fight that battle for them? It’s just a song.
As long as I remember that the glory is his and not my own. When I confuse that I get in trouble. but when i remember the proper hierarchy. …
The object is to glorify God first, and in doing that you become glorified. You get glorified.
I have a considerable amount of confidence, but it’s not in me. Its the work that God’s doing in me that makes me confident.
this is so encouraging. just…the wisdom. praise Yah.
