“My Hidden Confidence” – An Intro

As a wife of a wonderful man, mum of four children and having reached an age where maturity and wisdom is expected, I still struggle with the feelings of loss over losing the innocence of my childhood. Because my childhood was tainted with emotional guilt and abuse that was far too heavy for any child to bear, both my enjoyment and the innocence of childhood were stolen from me. And there are still times when the longing for what I lost resurfaces, bringing with it feelings of emptiness. It is for this reason I guard myself from pondering too much on my past, except to use my experience to bring better qualities to my life today, particularly in relation to my role as a Mum.

For the majority of my life I have felt as if I was a traveller who was passing through, and not unlike a tourist witnessing the events happening around me, and although at times participating and included, I continuously felt as if my presence was a hindrance to others and that therefore, I was of no worth to the situation. I felt as if the only reason for my life was to be there for others, purely to meet their needs as requested. Clouded with this sense of worthlessness, I undoubtedly believed that if I was to walk out of a situation, event or a part of my life that I would not be missed. I wandered through life struggling to find vision or purpose.

"Undaunted" by Christine Caine

A book I will read again!

The story that Christine shares is personal and impacting, full of honesty and openness. I related to so much of what she had to share and was extremely encouraged.

Christine is with no doubt a woman of faith, but it is the way in which she openly shares the journey of faith, including the thoughts of doubt and question and the wonder of how it will all work out that for me was the greatest encouragement.

I often feel like a lesser woman of faith when I begin to doubt, yet what I learnt from this real life story is that is the action which we take that will bring us closer to the purpose we were designed for.

I was also reminded that, from my own dark and depressive experiences, I can be used to empower and equip others; but it takes the desire to not only want change but to hang on tight to it, grip it well and move forward with it every day.

This is my first Christine Caine book, one I picked up from a recommendation, and I am so glad that I did. Christine writes in an easy to read fashion, but I found it was her honesty and humbleness before God that captured me.

I do recommend this book as a great read, but be prepared to be challenged whilst also very encouraged to become someone who is UNDAUNTED!
