  4. 6. Psalm 139:14-16 <ul><li>“ For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother’s womb. I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are Your works, and that my soul knows very well. My frame was not hidden from You, when I was made in secret and skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Your eyes saw my substance, yet being unformed. And in Your book they were all written, the days fashioned for me, when as yet there were none of them.” </li></ul>

  8. 11. Philippians 1:6 <ul><li>“ [I am] confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ.” </li></ul><ul><li>Question : Does God have a long range goal for your life? </li></ul>
  9. 12. Romans 8:29 <ul><li>“ For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.” </li></ul>
  10. 13. We lose confidence when we compare ourselves with others <ul><li>Don’t compare yourself in: appearance, abilities, family, and environment (past experiences) which are things that usually cannot be changed. </li></ul><ul><li>Find one particular area in which you are gifted and excel to the best of your abilities. </li></ul>
  11. 14. Peter Drucker: <ul><li>“ Identify your greatest single strength, and maximize it .” </li></ul>

  14. 17. Lucy to Charlie Brown: <ul><li>“ You, Charlie Brown, are a foul ball in the line drive of life! You’re in the shadow of your own goal posts! You are a miscue! You are three putts on the 18 th green! You are a seven-ten split in the 10 th frame! You are a dropped rod and reel in the lake of life! You are a missed free throw, a shanked nine iron, and a called third strike! Do you understand? Have I made myself clear?!” </li></ul>
  15. 18. Key #5 <ul><li>Know that your confidence is secure when you trust God with your circumstances (Isaiah 41:10). </li></ul>
  16. 19. Isaiah 41:10 <ul><li>“ Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.” </li></ul>

  19. 22. John Maxwell, Be a People Person <ul><li>“ An insecure leader . . . believes neither in himself or herself nor in others. Insecure people are afraid to risk building up others with compliments, because they are constantly in need of compliments themselves.” </li></ul>
  20. 24. Helen Keller <ul><li>“ Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.” </li></ul>
