Chapter 1: Discovering the Shadow of my Doubt
So don’t throw away your confidence, you will be richly rewarded.
You need to persevere, so that when you have done the will of God, you will
receive what he has promised you. Hebrews 10:35-36

We’ll go through the devotion each day together sharing scripture, encouragement, doubts, fears, and insecurities that have taken up residence in our hearts. The 7-Day Doubt Diet includes seven foundational truths from different chapters of A Confident Heart.
Day 1: Don’t Throw Away Your Confidence
Taken in part from Chapter 1 and 61 1
What about if I make up my mind one morning determined that I’m going to change everyone’s sheets and somehow life happened and I never got started. I know what emotions are coming. Do you? I know that even though I home schooled my kids, washed a load of clothes AND put them away, worked, then cooked dinner it’s not those accomplishments that my mind surrenders to – it’s the one thing I didn’t do. I’ll tell myself I’ll do better tomorrow, why can’t I be more organized, if I would just stay focused then I’d get everything done.
- Recognize the power I give self doubt.
- Stand up to it and claim the confidence God has already given me.
- Pray and ask God to show me when I turn around to toss my confidence in the can.
When you start a diet or physical training plan, experts recommend you complete a Body Mass Index analysis to determine if you are overweight, underweight, or in a healthy weight range.
A Message from Renee:
“Please don’t get discouraged if your score reveals that self-doubt is weighing you down more than you realized. I used to check “always” on all of them. But I didn’t want to stay there, and I don’t want you to either. That is why I wrote my book A Confident Heart , and why I’m offering “The 7-day Doubt Diet”- a week’s worth of devotions from my book for FREE.”
A Personal Prayer Request from Kasey
I hear you God, I really do……..but to be 100% honest I’d rather you just answer my prayer that he won’t lose his job. Why do I automatically trust more in the security of a job, than the security of God’s promises?
