Journal Entry 2017:
After a battle with a wave of self-doubt this past week I had a distinct impression from the Lord at how un-impressed He was by my doubts. The thought caught me off guard. I had never put my self-doubts in context of how they are viewed by He to whom I was complaining about them. That one thought changed the entire situation. The self-doubt lost it's pull in favor of faith in Him.
Now I see that our doubts are not impressive to the Lord, but our faith pleases Him (Hebrews 11:6).
