Faith, Boldness, and Self-Confidence


"Confidence is a wonderful thing
that allows me to face life with
boldness, openness, and honesty."
-Joyce Meyer

I truly believe that as a Christian I am loved, valuable and safe in God's will for my life.
When I embrace these truths it is easy to step out and try new things, even though I will make mistakes along the way. When I focus on God and His love, I am able to expect success rather than fear failure.

Some weeks this is easier said than done.

It seems that there is lots of hurting going on right now.
I can listen, but I don't have all the answers.
In fact, I have very few answers to these complex problems.
On some days, if I lean on my own understanding, I feel drained and fearful.

When I remember to lean on God, I feel bold and self-confident!
This self-confidence is rooted in God's love and energy, not my own!
I'm working on letting go and letting God!

I know that I need a break
It's around the corner.
Rest will help me to see things in perspective!

All I can say today is that through faith I expect good things to happen and problems to be solved!

God bless! Love, Linda

"For I, the Lord your God, will hold your right hand, saying to you, 'Fear not, I will help you" (Isaiah 41:13).

I find comfort in the fact that God promises never to give us more than we can handle. With that said, He has so much more faith in me than I tend to have in myself because it often seems like the amount is too much. That is when we turn to Him and ask him to share the load, which He does with grace and honor.
