Doubt

For some reason, my confidence took a big dip today. I don’t really know why. My stress levels spiked too. What’s going on? Is it something in my subconscious? Or something that’s right in front of me? Whatever it is, I want to get rid of it quick. It’s like a rock in my shoe. It’s there, but I can’t get rid of it. At least it’s causing me discomfort and I’m fighting back against it. I’m not going willingly this time.

I really don’t know what happened today. I’m filled with doubt all of a sudden. I’m so confused. I don’t know what caused it either. I kind of doubt that people just randomly have days of doubt. Does that actually happen? Maybe I’m just starting to stress again. Sigh. Thinking a little bit more, I think this self-doubt started Sunday. When I started getting ready for church, I didn’t feel pretty. Ugh. What is going on? I’m super sorry that this is a little bit of a boring post, but I just don’t feel myself and I thought I should … let it out. That’s the point of this blog!

Going off topic, this past Sunday we did something really cool. We talked about prayer and actually made posters with a Bible verse about prayer on it. I’m going to tape it to my wall and write my prayer requests on it. It’s a good daily reminder about the things I need to pray about. And that I need to pray more often … definitely a good reminder.

I think that’s about all for today. I’m making steps to achieve a dream of mine. They’re small, slow steps, but they’re steps. I really want to know what caused my doubt. I guess prayers will give me the answer.

    Hey, I know what you mean! I struggle with all sorts of doubts daily. A scripture that really helps me is Hebrews 10:35 it says, “So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded.” It reminds me never to give up during the hard times because brighter days are ahead!

      Thank you so much for your encouraging words! Your verse especially stuck with me and it’s just what I needed right now; there are a lot of things going on in my life right now that I just need some encouragement and confidence in right now. Hebrews 10:35 impacted me so much, that I actually drew a poster of it. God spoke through you and I thank you so much for being His blessed messenger!
