Install New Confidence Software

Install “Confidence” Software Now

“Install New Confidence Software” by Joan Y. Edwards

When computers were first able to send emails and get return emails in minutes, they hooked me right away. Computers fascinated me. I took a class to learn to program a computer. Oh my goodness! It took about 10 pages of programming to get the computer to add 1 plus 1 = 2. 

Computers enabled me to communicate with people far and wide. That was fun. I enjoyed teaching my students how to use a computer. There have been many times in my life when I lacked the confidence I needed to do something that seemed to hold a “fear” or a”don’t be ridiculous, you could never do that” voice in my head. I needed more confidence.

There are many times in my life when I needed more confidence. I wish I could just download it and install it that would install new confidence in me. I’ll bet you’ve wish the same thing. I’m here to tell you that there is an app to download to your heart that will fill you with confidence. It’s called “Love Yourself as God Loves You.”

Love yourself as God loves you.

Here are definitions to ponder: download means to transfer (software, data, character sets, etc.) from a distant to a nearby computer, from a larger to a smaller computer, or from a computer to a peripheral device…say from God faraway to you, wherever you are.

Install according to Merriam Webster means to set up for use or service. That’s definitely what I want to do. I want the confidence set up to serve me to use for my benefit and the benefit of others that I meet on my path in life.

Notice the word “Soft” in software. Soft like a pillow, like a cotton ball, like a balloon filled with air, like a velour towel, like a baby’s skin.

The “ware” in software means an immaterial asset or benefit, such as a service or personal accomplishment, regarded as an article of commerce. So software from God will enable me to perform a service and to carry out personal goals. 
Once you download this software  into your psyche, your subconscious mind, it starts working. Just press the Belief power button. Good luck. (When you press here, it takes you to Gospel devotionals I wrote that may help give your more confidence and faith in yourself.)


I haven’t done a new post in a while. I worked on my taxes. I efiled them with Turbo Ta for Home and Small Business on April 18, 2017 about 3:30 p.m. EDT. I am thankful that I was able to get the taxes done on time. I loved using that software.

I promised myself that I would begin anew on the illustrations for Larry the Terrifying Turkey after I submitted my taxes. When I get the illustrations near the final draft, I might share with you. I’m shy about sharing my drawings and paintings. So I may do a few blog posts about illustrating and drawing.

Thanks for reading my blog. If you have any subjects, you’d like for me to write about, let me know.
