I am confident

I am confident
Said the grain
as it was buried deep inside the soil
that although I die alone today
as the rain falls
and the sun shines
I shall resurrect
not one
but many

I am confident
said the flower
for though I tremble
at the thought of my crushing
I know
it shall produce a sweet perfume
that may grace the temples
of a queen or

I am confident
said the silver
as it was poured in the melting pot
that this heat
is for my good
and I shall patiently bear
until a pure reflection
doth the silversmith see
when he looks in me

I am confident
said Joseph
as he pondered on the journey of his life
that the dream God has given me shall come to pass
I have been in the pit and sold to slavery
and am now wrongfully put in this prison
but the Lord is with me
and will turn it around for my good

I am confident
said Believer
as she faced the storms of life
that I will get to the other side
though the winds are raging
and the waves are blowing
Jesus is captain of this boat
and I walk in supernatural peace

So I ask, where is your confidence today? In the storm you can see or in the God that you 'cannot' see but know is definitely working ALL things together for your good. Selah.

being confident of this, that he who BEGAN a GOOD WORK in you will carry it on to COMPLETION until the day of Christ Jesus Philippians 1:6 (NIV)

There has never been the slightest doubt in my mind that the God who started this great work in you would keep at it and bring it to a flourishing finish on the very day Christ Jesus appears. Philippians 1:6 (The Message)

So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded Hebrews 10:35 (NIV)
