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
I have joined Time 2 Save Workshops in the 7-day Doubt Diet, if you haven’t signed up, don’t put it off YOU are worth it.Get your free copy here. You’ll need your own copy to read as we won’t copy each days entire devotion. 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.
- Have I lost my ever loving mind? Why on earth would I voluntarily put myself in such a vulnerable position.
- No one’s going to read it – there will be no comments – nothing on facebook – no tweets nothing.
- I’m afraid that you’ll think I have it all together and ask why is I’m sharing the devotion.

At the end of Chapter 1 there are several review questions – it’s up to you but I am going to get somewhere by myself with no cell phone, computer or children so that I can hear the still small voice of my Father longing to draw me close to him – waiting for me to turn to him. This will be uncomfortable for me, I don’t like to be alone where my thoughts can go into overdrive without
distractions. I’m serious ya’ll, I even read emails in the shower on my phone. I don’t go to bed until I am ready to pass out – why? If I’m not distracted then I might think too much. It might hurt too much, I will think about my precious daddy who I miss so much. I want to avoid the refiners fire and the potters wheel.
