Confidence

Written by Lisa DeVinney on . Posted in poetry

'His mother had named him Jabez,' [meaning sorrow or pain].
Jabez cried out to the God of Israel, ‘Oh, that you would bless me
and enlarge my territory! Let your hand be with me,
and keep me from harm so that I will be free from pain.’
And God granted his request.”
1 Chronicles 4:9b-10 NIV
 
Lord, make my borders stretch, today,
Beyond the harmful words some say –
Those wounds that sting, and hold me down
While You’ve been tilling wider ground.
 
Lord, let me see myself as You
Through eyes of grace and mercy do –
A child of the matchless King
Who, with Your help, can do all things.
 
Then I can be free from the pain
To prosper through Your mighty Name,
To be all that You’ve called me to.
For my confidence comes from You!
 
 
“being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you
will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.”
Philippians 1:6 NIV

Very good blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers?
I'm hoping to start my own blog soon but I'm a
little lost on everything. Would you suggest starting
with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a
paid option? There are so many choices out there that I'm totally overwhelmed ..
Any ideas? Thank you!

I hear Wordpress is a great place to start, though I don't have any personal experience using it. I'd say just dive in and start writing...see where it takes you. :-) - Lisa
