Quiet and Confident Mondays???

It certainly seems like these Monday posts are ending up on various random days except Mondays :-) 
Confidence 

God is really working in my life this year and I am confident this is my word! Confidence, for me, means trusting God on a whole new level. Allowing Him to work through me and do for me what I cannot do. (I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Phil 4:13)
Wish I could have gotten closer to this blue jay. There were three or four of them out one morning just squawking and carrying on. It was so much fun to watch them and be reminded that even more than God cares for them... He cares for me.


Recently I got a "new" job of sorts. It is just a temporary thing but it has filled a need. Interestingly enough, it is not in an area I would have ever expected the Lord to send a job. Honestly, it is not an area I feel very confident in at all. I feel very vulnerable in this particular area, but God said "do it" so I am and He is not only infusing me with strength but He is also showing me that through Him I truly can do all things. I am learning to be confident in what I am doing, but also to humbly accept constructive criticism. And I have to tell you, criticism is something I struggle with constructive or otherwise.

I am not a confident person by nature. I often feel extremely insecure and frequently second guess my decisions and choices, so I am learning to make a decision and rest in my Father's love. But I still have... Oh so much to learn.


What I am reading...
Last week I did not get the Chapel Springs book finished as I had planned, so I will be blogging about it this week.

I am also in the process of reading Control Girl - Who knew how much I needed this book. I have never really considered myself much of a control girl.... but reading this book has been I opening and I wonder..... Could I be a bit controlling after all? Maybe we all just have those tendencies occasionally. Well, if you can relate, you should really get a copy of this book!

I started reading Restoring Love by Jennifer Slattery and am around chapter 15. So far, I have really enjoyed what I am reading. Be warned though, Jennifer's books are a bit intense. She deals with REAL LIFE STUFF and it is emotionally entangling. Not necessarily an easy read, but very good!
