I am strong. I am dedicated. I am focused. I am confident. I am all these things for me and from me. I am turned in towards self. I am working for me. I am proud. I am selfish, I am sinful.
No king is saved by the size of his army;
no warrior escapes by his great strength.
A horse is a vain hope for deliverance;
despite all its great strength it cannot save.
But the eyes of the Lord are on those who fear him,
on those whose hope is in his unfailing love,
to deliver them from death and keep them alive in famine.
We wait in hope for the Lord;
he is our help and our shield.
In him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in his holy name.
May your unfailing love rest upon us,
O Lord, even as we put our hope in you.
I am loved. I am delivered. I am saved. I am forgiven. I am God’s very own child. Now I can be all these things for others. I am confident. I am focused. I am dedicated. I am strong. I am His.
Dear heavenly Father, I am sorry for when I gather my strength from self, self-worth, self-respect, self-trust, self-confidence. I realize that I am a weak person to draw strength from. Thank you for your forgiveness and unending love. Thank you for filling me with your strength. I am yours forever. Amen.
