Twenty-two years after its conception, Oprah Winfrey finally made it to ESSENCE Fest – the nation’s largest gathering of black women.
The media mogul spent her first time ever at the 2016 festival (July 2) delivering an empowering speech about personal fulfillment that surrounded purpose and was centered around God.
“The key, the secret, the magic, is to surrender to God’s dream for you,” she said referring to her her own journey. “I’m not living the dream because I’m special, but I was obedient to the call of the dream. I’m living in the space of the dream and the dream is good. There is a bigger dream for you. What is God’s dream for you. What does the creator’s dream hold for you?”
Peep the clip below where she gives an inspiring example of how God exceeds the expectations we set for ourselves when we’re obedient and trust Him to do what He promised.
