These girls aren’t usually what others would call the “prettiest” or even the “smartest”.
The girls that I was jealous of were the ones that could get ANYONE talking and made everyone feel included. The ones that would stand up in front of a group and give a quick talk and would skip the part where their hands shake and voice cracks. The ones that could hop out on the dance floor and have the time of their life WITHOUT any liquid courage.
You know those girls, right?

There are so many misconceptions about self-confidence that I’d like to clear some up.
It’s the state of being secure in yourself and your abilities.
Put it in the Christian perspective; it’s the state of being secure in who God made you and your God-given abilities.

True self-confidence is not selfishness, conceit, pride, or a lack of humility.
That is Satan talking. The enemy has been twisting confidence and succeeding at destroying it for so many Christian women.
Well, look at the benefits of self-confidence.
As you can see, this is very threatening for the enemy.
Of course, he will do what he could to attack it.
So, over the next couple of weeks, I will be breaking down how to build self-confidence and what that could mean for your life and your waistline.
I pray that you continue to come back and really work on your self-confidence. It is one of the greatest gifts that you could give others, God, and…
