"But blessed are those who trust in the Lord and have made the Lord their hope and confidence" -Jeremiah 17:7
Reading this book for the second time around is exactly what I need. I read things that resonated with me before but it seems to be hitting home even more this time and I understand even more.
The more I read, the more I'm starting to think that I'm supposed to be reading it again.
It's no secret that I struggle with anxiety. Bad anxiety. To the point where it stops normal life and sometimes I feel like I can even function. Usually those times happen at work and we know that's not a good thing.
I almost feel like I shouldn't be hosting a bible study called "A Confident Heart" because it's something I struggle with every day.I refuse to let it define me though and I refuse to let it take over my life anymore. Like Renee says in Chapter One, "It's not supposed to be this way." We weren't made with fear and doubt in our hearts. We were made to love and have hope.
Something my Pastor said on Sunday has been on my mind ever since, "It's a process." and he talked about deciphering if what you're going through is a process or a project? We have to remember that with process, it's not going to happen right away and we have to work hard at a change that we want to see or need to have.
Which is exactly what Renee Swope was saying in this chapter. We need to hope that life can be different, that change is possible!
So, tell me. What do you hope to get out of this study? What spoke to you in this chapter?
Also, please introduce yourself! I know a few of us already "know" each other but there are some who don't! I am working on getting an online group area set up so that we can join there instead! Until then, reach out! Let's discuss! and if you've written a post please provide a link back! Thanks!
Happy Wednesday Y'all!
