psalm so true. I find that looking to Jesus actually makes me more confident. I stop being self conscious, while remaining self aware, and become Jesus conscious :) so whenever you wonder how you're going to survive and be yourself, think of Jesus.
He designed it that way, so we'd crave him and love him as much as he loves us, only we try to fill that God-shaped hole in our heart with everything else. But "everything else" is never enough.Jehovah our Creator
This made me wonder if I've been tested deeply? Probably not yet, so far my faith hasn't cost me much in my life. But I hope I can be rooted so much in Christ that when trials do come I can find peace and joy in them.
