One of the most common obstacles to living a joyful life is self-doubt. Self-doubt can wreak havoc on our relationships, including our relationship with God. When we question our worth and our abilities we will never fulfill our divine purpose in life. We will always stop short out of fear of rejection and failure.
As a woman who has had her self-esteem and confidence whittled away by an abusive marriage, I understand first-hand how important it is to identify the lies we tell ourselves and overcome insecurities of our past that cripple us in our daily lives. For this reason I have chosen Renee Swope’s book, A Confident Heart as the first online Bible study for the Roswell Propel Women’s chapter. In A Confident Heart the author shows women how to identify, overcome, and even use doubt in order to live confidently in God’s power, truth, and grace. A Confident Heart is an authentic, insight-filled and encouraging message for any woman who wants to exchange destructive thought patterns with biblical truth that will transform the way she thinks, feels, and lives.
Information taken from Renee Swope’s website:
Do you ever feel like you’re not good enough, smart enough, or valuable enough? Do words you say to yourself, or hear from others, make you question your worth and purpose? Best-selling author, Renee Swope understands. Even with a great family, a successful career, and a thriving ministry, she still sometimes struggled with paralyzing self-doubt. Offering the voice of a friend, Renee candidly, and sometimes humorously, shares her story of overcoming self-doubt with powerful Biblical Truths that transformed her life — and thousands of others!
Chapter by chapter, A Confident Heart will help you:
- Learn to fail forward even when life or sin sets you back
- Live confidently in your God-given purpose, passion, and personality
- Break free from people-pleasing and performance-based living
- Exchange “against me” thoughts with scripture-based God is “for me” thoughts
- Trust the certainty of God’s promises in the uncertainty of your circumstances and emotions
Powerful scripture-based prayers are at the end of each chapter, along with Bible study questions and a chart with thirty-one different promises to overcome our most common self-doubts.
