I choose to be confident in the woman/man you've called me to be.
Not the person situations have made me become,
Or the person I think myself to be,
But the person you see in me;
The person you have placed in me
I choose to be comfortable in my lane,
Not competing with others or comparing myself with them;
Not poking my nose into others' lanes when I have my race to run.
Jealousy and foolish comparison will not have their way in me.
I choose to be confident in the uniqueness of my gifts, calling, potentials, assignment, and resources,
All that you have invested in me so I can become who you have called me to be.
I have all I need and more in You, to become who you see me to be.
I choose to stay in my process, trust your workings in me and be content in my uniqueness;
I will not be complacent nor content with mediocrity,
But will manifest the greatness and excellence you have put in me.
I will not paint a picture of myself that you have not painted of me.
I won't be boastful, arrogant, rude, envious or selfish,
Rather, I will be kind, patient, rejoice in the truth, exude temperance and humility,
I will never stop hoping, never stop believing and never give up,
By the help of your Spirit at work in me.
I choose to be confident in who you have already made me to be.
I will be confident in you. YOU are ENOUGH for me!
I will fix my gaze on you all the days of my life,
Seeking you with all my heart,
And trusting your will,
As You transform me into the woman/man you see in me,
Into the image of your Son...
This is my pledge.
