Self-confident, a graduate of Dale Carnegie public speaking course, steps up to the podium. If you feel you have little in common with my fictional character, you are not alone. Many of us squirm, tremble and get a lump in our throat when speaking to strangers or large crowds. To some, confident is a prefix to their name; to multitudes, it is wishful thinking. As a follower of Christ, I seek balance between self-confidence and trust.
What the Prophet Jeremiah lacked in self-confidence, he made up for in confidence in his Lord. "But blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord and has made the Lord his hope and confidence. He is like a tree planted along a riverbank, with its roots reaching deep into the water-a tree not bothered by the heat nor worried by long months of drought. Its leaves stay green and it goes right on producing all its luscious fruit (Jeremiah 17:7-8 Living Bible)."
