Finally, someone did. The confident, but less than talented contestant was told, "I'm sorry. You got the confidence. You just don't have the song!" That pretty well summed up the situation. The dejected contestant left the room. The judges looked down at the table and shook their heads.
For some reason, the phrase stuck with me--"You got the confidence. You just don't have the song." (By the way, the poor grammar was the judge's; not mine.) I think I wanted to remember it because my Heavenly Father offers me BOTH. Confidence AND song!
With the Psalmist, I can say, "My heart is confident in you, O God; no wonder I can sing your praises with all my heart!" (Psalm 108:1)
|Our February mantel. Not sure if I have the "song" here...|
It's true about other things, too. But when it comes to Jesus, I really want the verdict to be, "You've got the confidence AND you have the song!" Fact is, that IS the verdict. He IS my confidence. He IS my song.
