I have several blogs I read on a regular basis and A Planting of the Lord gets regular views from this blog lover! Although I do not personally know Miss Kimberly, I feel as if we are fast friends because of the honesty with which she conveys her heart in all of her posts. The post from her blog that I linked above highlights Chapter 6 of Renee Swope's book A Confident Heart. Two lovely ladies who I am priviledged to call "friends" and I have almost finished this helpful book. It has been a wonderful tool in not only identifying what causes doubt in our hearts but how to go foward in replacing those doubts with confidence!!
If you've been reading here long, you might remember the very first post I ever wrote which explains WHY I needed this book in particular. We all have doubts, no matter what type of individual God created you to be, every single fallen person hears doubt whisper things like
"You can't do that, you don't have what it takes"
"What's wrong with me?"
"You'll never be able to (fill in the blank)"?
and, of course, the ever popular
"Why can't I be like so-and-so?".
comparison is so very dangerous
This book not only clearly speaks to every area of our doubting heart's thoughts BUT gives tools to alleviate each one with the Truth from a God who formed us to be a glorious representation of himself (pre-fall that is)!
I am so very sad that my study of this book is almost over! It's one I would truly do again and again. My heart needs to be reminded so very often of what God says about me as his daughter. Clicking on the link above will give you a sneak peak into just what is available in this powerhouse publication!! AND if you're interested in participating in a small group study, leave me a comment. I'd love to join you in the journey of discovering the secret to A Confident Heart!
