Low and high level of confidence

How would you rate your confidence level?

If you have confidence in someone, you feel that you can trust them, but what about confidence in the self? One would expect a person to have (some) confidence in himself, and to feel sure about his abilities, qualities, or ideas.

The quality of being certain of my abilities or of having trust in plans, or the future has not always been very good. On that front, I am not good and have to admit that I have always been undermined by my fears of not succeeding or not achieving what I would like to achieve.

Most people would love to achieve a particular aim or effect, with me it is no different. As a child I wanted already to go for certain professions, becoming a preacher or becoming a well-known musical star. You can question if I succeed in doing so. In a certain way, you also could say I might not complain because, after some hard work I could earn my living with what I enjoyed most, dancing. With confidence, I might say that it was caused to happen, and not always like it usually happens by others, after a lot of effort

I am confident that not everything comes like nothing. More than once an unusual amount of physical or mental energy is needed to reach the goals one set for oneself. 

I have every confidence that the world shall exist for all times and that man shall have its role to play in it. But I am not sure that it will be the man who shall be able to find a solution for everything. I belief in the certainty of there being a God and Him having a Plan for the universe and mankind. There is no doubt about what is going to happen in the near future. But I am not quite sure if I would have managed to prepare myself and others enough for the very difficult times to come, a world in shambles, not able to escape the end times. Some might find that we are now already facing a great clutter or jumble, the world being in a total mess. But I am convinced that it shall get even much worse. For me there is no doubt Armageddon shall arrive some day, we do not know when exactly, because it shall be like a thief in the night.

So while I may be uncertain about my own abilities, I am very confident about the things that have become prophesied in the Bible, which makes me joyful on that front of confidence every day.
