A Confident Heart: Renee Swope
In a previous post I mentioned that I am curious to read 'A Confident Heart' by Renee Swope to learn more how to put my trust in the Lord, and to build up my confidence through Him. I signed up for the 7 Day devotional series, but I don't know if I can legally post them here as they are copy-righted. You can go here to sign up for the 7 emails yourself though. Of course it is meant to get you interested to buy the book, but they are very good in themselves. Here is an excerpt from her devotional today:
