  1. Good Morning:
    It is so good to have a “refresher” on A Confident Heart. Hearing you on the show this morning just gives me a reminder that the Lord, loves me and has His plans already layed out for me – all I need to do is be ready to stand still and listen.
    The reminder of Proverbs 19:22, is my verse for today.
    The empty jar example is so true and has helped me to remember to fill my jar with things and people that mean the most to help them and me in my walk with the LORD.
    Thank you Renee for this wonderful book!!
    Can’t wait until the next show.

    • Im so glad you were able to listen in and join us Pat! What I love is that I get to share from my heart and from the book. Things I’ve said and new things God’s been showing me.

      It’s such a heart-transforming process to believe God’s love and then let it be the source of our satisfaction – the water we drink again and again.

  2. I am ready for another go around with Confident Heart. Why is this so hard to get through my thick “heart”. I know it, but I just can’t practice it consistently. “consistency” that is the key….
    thank you,

    • Deena,
      I am right there with you friend. But don’t be too hard on yourself. 🙂

      We’ve lived for years and years believing lies and doubts about ourselves. So it’s going to take time for all these new truths to change us from the head to our heart – more than not just one or two reads through the book. For me, Im seeing progress but also realizing it’s a lifelong journey – yet one that has been so worth working through these past 3 years!!

      I think the key is to keep going back to the message of a Confident Heart and asking Jesus to speak to us again and again.

      To show us what doubts we’ve stepped back into believe and what truths we need to take hold of each day – each moment – so that we can keep being transformed by His truth.

      Remember the bathroom light and shadow story in ch 1 and 5 – and how we learned that it’s not about trying harder, but turning sooner when we recognize our self-doubts?

      Praying for you, and right there in process with you and Jesus!! Love that we’re in this together!


  3. Renee: This video really spoke to me, as has your book. This is so important for us today as we are facing more and more attacks from the culture. Our young women are being indoctrinated by an anti-God, superficial, material, agenda that will only leave them miserable and unable to fill the God-shaped hole in their hearts. Your book is such a breath of fresh air that can empower us to go out and help the younger generation fight the spiritual attacks, as God calls us to in Scripture. I hope to use your book and videos to help women in crisis seek the only Truth that will set them free.


    • I would love that Mary!! This battle we fight for the freedom of our hearts is not only for us but for those who might see what God is doing in us and find courage to take hold of the assurance and abundance of love He offers!!

  4. Angel Golson says:

    I have filled the places of my heart so many times with things of this world. I just signed up for a Twitter account today for the first time. Today has been a rough day, and I really needed this word. Thank you!

    • Isn’t God’s timing amazing??! I love that He led you to this today in such a tender and timely way. Praying for you Angel. I pray that each of the videos will speak to your heart and encourage you in ways you never imagined!

  5. Denise Edmond says:

    That was really good! I want God to fill me, not the things of this world..they are so temporal. Thank you for sharing. I’ m going back to view the other lessons. I really hope I win…I would love to share these with my three daughters!

    • So glad you found your way here and that you were able to watch the video. Be sure to sign up to get email reminders each week in September so you don’t miss any. There are 8 in all and each one is filled with sweet encouragement from Jesus for our love-thirsty hearts!

  6. I just ordered your book The Confident Heart and am looking forward to going through it. I have also enjoyed these 3 videos on the book. Thank you.

    • Chantelle! Im so glad you are joining us for the videos and got your own copy of the book. Il’l be sharing this week about a little more in-depth book study we’ll be offering through Proverbs 31 Ministries in October.

      Would love for you to join us!!

  7. Looking forward to A Confident Heart OBS! My heart is in need of some extra attention to boost the confidence that seems to dwindle away as the trials of daily life take over!

    • Hi Pamela!

      So excited you’re going to be part of the r P31 Online Bible Study of A Confident Hear in Oct!

      It’s going to be amazing! Can’t with new videos and great ideas Melissa and her team have been working on to bring the message and each chapter to a whole new level than we have before! I am so looking forward to joining in too!

  8. I have loved this video series. Thank You ! I want so much to be filled with my heavenly father. I long to feel satisfied and content. How do we keep the FULL feeling ? There are alot of times when dealing with everyday stuff that i forget to turn to my father. Sometimes I feel so overwhelmed that i may bust if I try to fill one more space. I can not wait to start the online study.

    • Thank you Chris for stopping by! I am so glad you are enjoying the video series and Jesus is speaking to you about the longings of your heart that He wants to satisfy with the tender mercies of His love for you!

      We are all forgetful but you know what? He made us and He understands. He’s right there waiting for you to come to Him as soon as you realize what you need to do to let Him love you!

      So glad you are going to be part of the online study too!

  9. Thank you for the reminder of Gods unconditional love

  10. Mippy/Sabrina says:

    I need to be still and know that He has got everything under control and things will be ok. 🙂

    • Amen sweet friend. It helps me so much to be still, quiet my heart and journal my thoughts with Him. And then to read a devotion that reminds me of His assurance and love. Many days that is what going to the well of His love looks like for me.

  11. I love the videos about the book. I am really looking forward to doing the online study with the proverbs 31 group and being about to refer back to my notes will be great! Renee did a great job on illustrating how we fill our lives up with so many things, when all we need is God, so we can be satisfied with him and able to do His Will.

    • Thanks for sharing your thoughts and letting us know you’ll be joining the Online Bible Study in October!! Im so excited Melissa and her team will be leading it. I’ll be praying and participating too!

  12. I heard you at She Speaks years ago. You are so precious. I loved your reference to the scripture in Proverbs. I wish I had seen this visual before I spoke at a recent teen conference! Very helpful information, and such an appropriate message for women to hear.

    • 🙂 Great to hear from you Amy!! And I agree, I think it’s a message women of all ages and stages of life need to hear. I need to preach it to myself almost daily 🙂

  13. Awesome reminder, Renee! I need to empty my jar of the world and receive the Living Waters!

    • I need to do it everyday. His love, assurance, acceptance, purposes – all poured in and then the rest can float on top! He’s the only One that satisfies 🙂

  14. Christina S says:

    I am so excited about the next study with proverbs 31, and reading this life changing book again! I have always been hard on myself, it’s so comforting to see how God sees us through different eyes, and loves me anyways. 🙂

  15. Im so glad you are going to join us and go through the book with me and our P31 Online Bible Studies team in Oct.

    It’s going to be amazing with new videos and great ideas Melissa and a few of us have been working on to bring the message and each chapter to a whole new level than we have before!

  16. Esther Diaz says:

    I really enjoyed Session 3… I like the way you explain things Renee… You are clear and to the point..
    Using the Jar and the water helped to drive the point home… Thanks so much… I am going to share these
    videos with some of the ladies I know who need encouragement in God… May the Lord continue to bless you..

  17. Renee I continue to be inspired by you with every Session! Thank you for being a light that shines brightly through to my soul! Today my husband and I are celebrating our 13th wedding anniversary – a second marriage for us both – and your encouragement has helped me in ways you will never know. Thank you and may God bless you and your ministry.

  18. Thanks Renee! This is such a great reminder to go directly to our God to help us find what our hearts need- what we are looking for in our life. It’s usually more of Him! He does satisfy our every need!
    Thanks for giving us the opportunity to win your DVD! They would be great for our small group! 🙂

  19. This hit home with me about what we look to to fill us up looking for approval. I’m dealing with this right now and I needed to hear this today.

  20. I originally bought your book last year, and have been side-tracked for a long time. Actually I think it is a deliberate attack from my enemy to keep me from reading it. Have viewed all three sessions and am looking forward to more. Question: Is this the study or is the study still to come? I really want to do a more in-depth study and then to share it with other women in a small group setting. So winning the DVD would be AWESOME!!! Or maybe starting a small group of women and doing the study is just the kick-in-the-pants I need to get going. And it is definitely the kick-out-of-my-life that I need to give to my enemy! I even started my own blog last year and wrote a piece on Rejection. Thank you for your book. Are you sure you didn’t write it for me?

  21. Renee,
    Thank you so much for sharing your heart with these videos, they are such a blessing as is your book. I just need to remember that God is in control of my life and my health and to be thankful in all areas. Thank you again. Nikki

  22. I am so thankful to have another opportunity to go thru this book again…I. gained so much from my first book study and need to hear this message again!

  23. This is my (3) visit to “A Confident Heart”–(2) Bible Studies and now the video refresh!!!

    Renee, it is such a blessing to go through your book over and over. It always speaks something new to me and the videos and study guides help bring your message home. God is always working in us–we just need to be still and listen and process and allow his healing in!!!
