I know that my strength, my worth, my everything, comes from my confidence in Christ. Webster’s definition of confidence says it arises from circumstances. When I think of the most confident times in my life, they were based on circumstance. My husband and I used to race all the time and were in really good shape. There’s sort of an exhilarating experience that happens when you cross the finish line, and I never want to deny that. Race’s are super fun. But we found ourselves, when our marriage was struggling, putting a lot of confidence in being endurance runners and athletes. When I think about confidence in Christ, it’s not based on circumstance. When I think on love, love is not based on circumstances. If I relied on my circumstances to have confidence, I would never have confidence.
