Weekend Wisdom: Biblical Confidence

Here are a few Biblical quotes to boost your confidence. May at least one of these help you through your week.

For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

2 Timothy 1:7

 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me

Philippians 4:13

 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

Proverbs 3:6 

And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

2 Corinthians 12:9 

17 Though the fig tree does not bud
    and there are no grapes on the vines,
though the olive crop fails
    and the fields produce no food,
though there are no sheep in the pen
    and no cattle in the stalls,
18 yet I will rejoice in the Lord,
    I will be joyful in God my Savior.

19 The Sovereign Lord is my strength;
he makes my feet like the feet of a deer,
he enables me to tread on the heights.

Habakkuk 3:17-19

 

Weekend Wisdom: Confidence

Whether you are a widow, a job seeker, or a widowed job seeker (been there, done that, it stinks!), confidence can be in short supply every now and then.  So I did some research and found some good confidence quotes.  I pray at least one of them will speak to you.

“You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, ‘I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.’ You must do the thing you think you cannot do.” 

Eleanor Roosevelt, You Learn by Living: Eleven Keys for a More Fulfilling Life

“Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you’ve imagined.” 

Henry David Thoreau

“Your greatness is revealed not by the lights that shine upon you, but by the light that shines within you.” 

Ray Davis

“Confidence is going after Moby Dick in a rowboat and taking the tartar sauce with you.” 

Zig Ziglar

If I have lost confidence in myself, I have the universe against me.

Ralph Waldo Emerson 

May you be joyfully blessed with an abundance of confidence…and tartar sauce!           😀
