Psalm 36:7

I've just started a new online bible study. The Confident Heart.This is all new for me. I just need something to help me focus my prayers and thoughts. I've got a couple of weeks to catch up on so I'm not in full swing as yet. Today, while perusing the bible study blog I can upon the blog hop. I'm hoping this will also be my motivation to blog more. I've been praying that God will show me how to be a blessing to others. Maybe this is it.

I've been going through a lot .... I was going to say lately, but it's actually going on for years.  I was/am married to an alcoholic. We have two gorgeous kids. A year ago August I finally got brave enough to tell my husband ENOUGH.  I've only seen him a couple times in the last year. But that's not what I'm here to write about.  In spite of the front that I put on .... I'm no longer a confident woman. I feel like a complete failure. I've not been able to "fix it".  For 25 years I've tried - prayed- cried-got angry -all to no avail. Because I can't fix someone who has no desire to help themselves.

When I first opened the study blog tonight the weekly verse Psalm 36:7 spoke to my heart.
How priceless is your unfailing love, O God!  People (Leslie) take refuge in the shadow of your wings.

How awesome is that??!!  I'm so excited to get started in this study. I can just picture myself standing under the huge covering and protection of the arms/wings of Jesus!

My prayer is that I can gain my confidence in God again. May all the glory be to God... In the name of Jesus I pray.  


  1. Wow friend! Thank you for sharing your story. God does provide all we need and He does it with out any strings attached. I too spent years looking and acting put together on the outside but raw and messy on the inside. God has pulled me through and even though there are days I too lack confidence there are more days that I do not!
    Praying for blessings of peace and healing for you!

  2. So glad you are joining us. Praying for you as you continue in your study.
