For many years I looked in the mirror and I saw a young man who lacked confidence. I always cared about what others thought about me -- yet, I didn't think very highly of myself. I was shy, timid and introverted. I was always afraid to let go of my insecurities because Satan and his demons had me bound. But when I became a man, I spoke like a man with boldness for your namesake. Amen.
