Confidence

Updated: Dec 29, 2020

What does the confident woman look like? It is something that has crossed my mind so many times. Confidence is a trait that is definitely sought after. So many things try to steal our confidence here on earth and make us insecure.

Insecurity causes us to compare and to discriminate against what we can offer to the world and our loved ones. It's a gripping overwhelming feeling that you will never be enough. Insecurities make us put our gifts that God planted on the inside of us and push them off to the side like they are not important. They cause us to look at others and want what they have or their abilities.

Honestly, I'm still working on my own confidence. I will build it up for awhile and then sometimes it just dwindles down. It dwindles when I get focused on toxic things. I've tried to rely on others to keep my confidence up. I've even tried to rely on my looks to keep my confidence up. I've tried to rely on my abilities to keep my confidence up. But the truth is I can not rely on any of those things. I have to rely on the One that created me and and the only One that knows me inside and out. Knows me better then I know myself. He knows my capabilities and what I have to offer. Jeremiah 1:5 says this, " I knew you before I formed you in your mother’s womb. Before you were born I set you apart and appointed you as my prophet to the nations." My God knew who I would be born to and what my talents would be before I was even born. He actually molded me.

The truth is we can look at everyone else's talents, looks, and personalities all we want. We will never be those people though. We have to work on being the best ME! We can not be anyone else. To be quiet frank if we stepped in someone else's shoes we probably would want to step back in our own no matter what our circumstances are. God set you up internally with everything you need to be victorious. If God is for you then who can be against you. With Him you will find favor in what you are meant to do. You will find favor with people, in your job, in your family, etc. That is true confidence. Knowing who you are in him.

Like I said I am working on my own confidence. I am still human like anyone else, and have built habits of thinking wrong about myself. I know habits can be changed. It is worth the work to change those habits though. I want to be the best wife, friend, employee and person I can be. I can be all of those things by being confident in who I am, what I am capable of, and not comparing myself.
