A Confident Heart ~ Review

A Confident Heart Devotional
60 Days to Stop Doubting Yourself
By Renee Swope


Have you ever had a doubts about what you are doing and in your ability to even be a halfway decent approximation of a functioning person?  Well, A Confident Heart will help you find confidence both in yourself and in God's love and caring for you as His beloved child.

Whether you are suffering from doubts brought about by guilt, fear, or past hurts God is ready to offer you His love and His confidence. Renee offers incidents from her own life and from the lives various people from the Bible to helps gain the confidence that we need so that we might fulfill the purpose that has been given us.  Not only will we fulfill it be we will do so in a manner that will bring about a greater blessing because we are not fettering ourselves with doubts.

At the back of the book there are appendixes - first a personalty summary so that you might determine your strengths and weaknesses and thereby able to counteract some causes of your doubts.  Second is When I say, God says in which we verbalize or think doubts and God offers a truth counter to our thought process and there are Scripture references to back these truths up.

All-in-all this is well thought out book and would make an excellent gift for any and all the dear ones in your life.  I think men and women would both find truths to help them get past the periods of trouble and doubt in their lives.

I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher in exchange for my honest review.

Available November 2013 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.
