It only takes one criticism or disapproval to shatter my confidence. I don't know what happened, when I was young I felt very confident. Maybe after years of being shown my inadequacies the disapproval sank into my spirit.
This sounds like it might be a sad evaluation of a life, but in truth it was the awakening I had needed to come to fully trust Jesus to be my Lord and overseer of my life. No longer putting trust in myself....
Jesus speaks love and peace into my spirit, unlike all of those other voices. He calms me with His soothing words and gives me confidence. He helps me learn and whispers life giving words
in my ear.
In fellowship with Him, I stand tall and have a mission and a purpose. I know He has it all worked out for me as I walk with Him.......
He has a plan just for you too! I don't know what it is, but I do know that it is awesome and you can have confidence in it, in Him.........trust Him!
