It’s nice to think highly of ourselves and be confident, but we must also remember to be humble in the process. Some of us are on what we believe are unshakable high horses of self, and as much as we’d like to think we are going to stay firm on that mountaintop of self, we never know where life is going to take us.
As a Christian, it is important for me to remember and always acknowledge that my confidence is found in Christ alone. I cannot allow my confidence to be based on my external appearance or worldly accomplishes. Knowing who and Whose I am takes the pressure focus off of me and is placed on a Confidence that cannot be shaken. My own confidence is shallow, it comes and goes, my outer beauty fades, and my life is full of highs and lows, but through it all, Christ is the only One who keeps me lifted…He’s more concerned with my heart and character anyway.
I came across this quote and fell in love with it. I’ll leave you with this in hopes that it encourages you ♡.
“Be humble in your confidence,
yet courageous in your character.”
