I realize as a Christian there’s a big difference between self confidence and God confidence. My confidence is proud of the strong person I have become because of my past…as if I am the only one who has endured more pain and suffering than anyone else I know, and I haven’t even experienced a midlife crisis yet. I subconsciously put the focus on me and next thing I know I’m having anxiety. So I pray to have God’s confidence. His confidence is a quiet and humble, comforting peace that assures me He is guiding me and good things are to come. It’s a simple and solid truth that tells me “Be still my child, let Me work things out for your good”. I know that it’s His confidence working in me when my walk, my smiles, my laughs, and the way I talk are in tandem with His joy. I notice that I have a different, much brighter glow about me when my thoughts give Him glory and credit for making me the person I am today. I have to remember that.
By His Grace, Sheela
