5 Christian Books To Help You Silence Insecurities And Be Confident In Your
God Given Identity
God Is Able by Priscilla Shirer
Nothing is impossible with God. Nothing.
Not even that thing. Your thing. The one thing that seems to defy all attempts to defeat it, restore it, heal it, change it, overcome it, undo it, or just to get through it.
If you’ve lost even an ounce of confidence in the power and loving attention of God–if experience has told you that faith must simply acquiesce to impossibility–it’s time somebody told you different.
Bible teacher and best-selling author Priscilla Shirer explores two power-packed verses of Scripture, displacing your doubts and rebuilding your assurance–not in a blind attempt to deny life’s adversities and troubles, but to show you that God is always up to great things. Amazing things. He’s a God who cares, and a God who CAN!

You can stop feeling left out, because even when you are overlooked by others, you are handpicked by God.

You are designed for a love without limits, a love that will never let go.

Lost And Found: Finding Hope In The Detours Of Life by Sarah Jakes Roberts
Like every girl, Sarah Jakes dreamed of a life full of love, laughter, and happy endings. But her dreams changed dramatically when she became pregnant at age thirteen, a reality only compounded by the fact that her father, Bishop T.D. Jakes, was one of the most influential megachurch pastors in the nation. As a teen mom and a high-profile preacher’s kid, her road was lonely. She was shunned at school, gossiped about at church. And a few years later, when a fairy-tale marriage ended in a spiral of hurt and rejection, she could have let her pain dictate her future.
Instead, she found herself surrounded by a God she’d given up on, crashing headlong with him into a destiny she’d never dreamed of. Sarah’s captivating story, unflinchingly honest and deeply vulnerable, is a vivid reminder that God can turn even the deepest pain into his perfection.

Our society has an insecurity epidemic, women in particular. Compensating by pretending to be secure-a common response-only leads to feelings of shame. Lack of self-confidence causes great difficulty in relationships of all kinds, and in

Joyce explains that confidence stems from being positive in your actions and living honestly, but most importantly from having faith, in God and in ourselves.
My hope for you is that you live your life knowing who you are in Christ. If you pick up any of these books, I pray that they bless you and give you that extra boost to boldly live your truth.
