Confidence and Strength


^ (A pattern that I painted. Just thought I would add this to my post...)

I guess we've all struggled to be confident or strong before...I know I have, a lot. There is always that small nagging voice in your head saying, 'You're not good enough.', 'You are worth nothing.' and 'Don't even try. You'll screw up'. Negative thoughts like that. Sometimes it's out of self-pity and sometimes we really feel like we are a nobody, like we cannot face the rest of the world because they'll laugh at us and think we're stupid. It's a terrible feeling. So how can we overcome it, be confident and strong? Well, here's what I think. Humans are pretty pathetic on their own. We can be so weak and faithless. And on our own it's very hard to be confident. But, there is someone who can give you strength and confidence. God.
If we live for Jesus everyday, we can wake up and feel that God has us in His hand and He has plans for the day. He knows what is going to happen. We can be confident - in our Lord. There are verses saying that we will be strong, and confident because of Him...

'Have you not known? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God,the Creator of the ends of the earth. He does not faint or grow weary; his understanding is unsearchable. He gives power to the faint, and to him who has no might he increases strength. Even youths shall faint and be weary, and young men shall fall exhausted; but they who wait for the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.' - Isaiah chapter 40 verses 28 to 31
~He is everlasting, the creator of the ends of the earth. He won't grow weary. He gives power. He will strengthen us and well will rise up with wings like eagles; I'm pretty sure that we'll feel confident with the wing story and His love there for us.~

'So we can confidently say, “The Lord is my helper; I will not fear; what can man do to me?”' - Hebrews chapter 6 verse 3
~He is our helper. We can confidently say so...~


If we trust Him, we can be confident and strong. He does not faint like we will without Him. There is also a verse in the bible that says, 'We can do all things through Christ who strengthens us', and we can. :)

  2. The pattern is very interesting:) While reading your thoughts, I was reminded of the song that goes "Everlasting, Your light will shine when all else fades, never ending, Your glory goes beyond all fame..." I've been listening to that song a lot lately, God's been my confidence and strength:)
