Men are born soft and supple;
dead, they are stiff and hard.
Plants are born tender and pliant;
dead, they are brittle and dry.
Thus whoever is stiff and inflexible
is a disciple of death.
Whoever is soft and yielding
is a disciple of life.
The hard and stiff will be broken.
The soft and supple will prevail.
Tao Te Ching v76
Confidence is my True Self expressing.
I was not born to hide my gifts, stifle my imagination, or withhold love. God made me to shine! Any critical thoughts about myself are like mud covering a brilliant gem.
I take three deep breaths to cleanse my mind of any negativity. With each breath, I wash away any thoughts of unworthiness. I release limits I have allowed to dominate my mind. And I let go of any shame about mistakes I have made.
I claim a clean slate in this moment and affirm the truth—I am wise, loving, and creative. My confidence increases as I see myself clearly. My true self shines forth like a nugget of gold washed clean of mud.
I am a shining expression of Spirit!
God did not give us a spirit of cowardice, but rather a spirit of power and of love and of self-discipline.—2 Timothy 1:7
This day is God’s. It is my gift to Him.
I will not lead my life alone today. I do not understand the world, and so to try to lead my life alone must be but foolishness. But there is One Who knows all that is best for me. And He is glad to make no choices for me but the ones that lead to God. I give this day to Him, for I would not delay my coming home, and it is He Who knows the way to God.
And so we give today to You. We come with wholly open minds. We do not ask for anything that we may think we want. Give us what You would have received by us. You know all our desires and our wants. And You will give us everything we need in helping us to find the way to You.
