Thought for the day: Developing self confidence

Today I will just give you a quote from “Start where you are” with no comments of mine. It deals with the topic of self confidence.“There was a time when I assumed these super confident people were that way because they were born with added doses of self-assured, self possessed qualities. Yet in my conversations with many individuals who have attained levels of mastery that assumption has proven wrong. And what I’ve come to discover, through this very lesson that core strengths can be forged on ordinary anvils of all kinds, is that confidence is definitely an acquired resource” by Chris Gardner.

Lillian Daniel: Every Spiritual Home (a Riff)

Excerpt from the chapter, “Every Spiritual Home”From: When “Spiritual but Not Religious” Is Not Enough: Seeing God in Surprising Places, Even the Churchby Lillian DanielJericho Books, 2013* * *These days, very few people who join our church were raised in the denomination or tradition we are a part of, and we are hardly unique in that. Most of my church members were raised in other forms of Christianity that were less open-minded than ours, and they may have some negative feelings about the church of their childhood. And so they drifted from church and sought to go it alone, without a faith community.But eventually they hit something that was bigger than private, self-created spirituality. Perhaps it was the death of a parent, the birth of a child, a friend’s illness, or a lonely patch in life, but suddenly they found themselves remembering some of those childhood Bible lessons. They found themselves recalling the blessings of the Christian faith, and they searched for a church, but they did so very tentatively, not knowing what they would find and afraid of being hurt.…A miraculous thing can happen to grown-ups on a faith journey Continue reading

Past Tense, Present Progressive: Bad, Evil Psychology Helped Me

Growing up, I heard a lot of scoffing at psychology in my family, homeschooling community, and fundamentalist church. In those circles, the study and application of psychology represented a worthless human attempt to feel happier apart from God and become better without the guidance of the Bible. The anti-psychology sentiment was so strong that even building kids’ self-confidence and self-esteem was derided as a “worldly” goal. There was too much “self” in the name. Real True Christian children were to be obedient and humble instead.Looking back, I definitely had the obedience thing handled; in fact, I cannot remember ever purposefully disobeying my parents, even in my teens Continue reading

Rev. Dr. Dan Montgomery: The Strength of Human Weakness

Weakness is an experience that nobody likes and everyone shuns. In America and most parts of the world Strength is admired and cultivated as a way of striving for achievement and building self-confidence.However, when people seek Strength at the expense of avoiding any sense of Weakness, they become entitled, inflated, and even cocky about how strong they are. I believe the Bible wants to correct this human error by teaching that “pride goes before the fall.”The truth is that we are all weak under our facade of strength. We all get sick, have accidents, are thrown into panic by sudden adversity, are vulnerable to various addictions, and haunted by the uncertainty that we may not have enough (money, friends, health, or even life) the day after tomorrow.So Christ teaches us to rely on him day to day, and not worry about tomorrow Continue reading
