A Look at Confidence

Is confidence just a fleeting feeling
That only comes once in a while?
Is it an outward cheery countenance
With a sort-of pasted-on smile?

Or is it something strongly hoped for,
A worthwhile goal you want to reach?
Can it be adequately described
That you will demonstrate and teach?

Can confidence be learned or taught?
What does your experience say?
Evidence will point to faith in God,
You’ll be happy to trust and obey.

The real confidence is amazing,
It acknowledges our Maker, that’s true;
Knowing that He knows everything,
His Word declares His love for you.
