I have been wanting to write this blog post for awhile. And to be honest I had the title of the post long before I had all 21 bible verses. When I was younger, I dunno somewhere between ages 9-12 my then step-dad made everyone recite a bible verse before eating dinner. I must have said Psalm 23:4 over 100 times because I remember my step-dad saying "Sirita, learn another verse." Back then I did not realize the importance and power that came with intimately knowing bible scriptures because of the wisdom they provide and the comfort they bring. Now that I am getting older, and consciously working to be more spiritually sound and led I know the importance of being fully armed with the word of God. It was the word of God that got me through and continues to get me through trying times. It is the word of God which I lean on through good times, and the word keeps me humble and very clear on just who and what sustains me.
Below are just a few scriptures to help boost your confidence when you're feeling low or even when you're feeling high! Remember that confidence truly comes from within and it radiates out. Confidence is also contagious, so be sure to spread some around. Recite these bible scriptures daily and watch your confidence increase. If you have a favorite bible verse that's not mentioned, leave it in the comments below.
