Prayer request submitted.
If you would have told me 40 years ago that I’d one day write a devotional about being a confident woman, I’m not sure I would have believed you. As a child, I endured many years of sexual abuse, which left me emotionally broken and seriously lacking confidence.
On the outside, I came across as a tough, bold person who couldn’t care less what other people thought. However, on the inside, I was the exact opposite—I was fearful and terribly insecure.
When I finally learned to love and value myself the way God does—when I began to receive my confidence from Him—it changed everything.
Regardless of your past, I want you to know that you can live with confidence and have a healthy self-image. God loves you, and He desires for you to truly love yourself for who you are—your personality, your gifts and talents, your “quirks” …everything.
