Welcome To The Religion Network!
I'm Lisa Bowman, editor of The Religion Network, a multi-faith Web site. This site provides inspirational quotes through an
exploration of a new spiritual theme every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. The Religion network is offered with the
conviction that inspiration can be found in all spiritual faiths, and furthermore, that finding the commonalities
among the world's religions is more healing than pointing up their differences.
Religion as an institution is a precious gift, blessing individuals and uplifting communities. However you choose to
worship, I hope this site enhances your journey. If you'd like to know my story, click on biography.
Parents are always trying to come with ways to help make their children
more confident. God the Father/Mother is no different, and we, His children
are the happy recipients of this most gracious gift.
We are all God's chosen children. God has perfect faith in us.
Let us try to have an iota of divine confidence in ourselves.
...Confidence is growth. It is the flowering of our human aspiration
and divine liberation. Aspiration is what man has and offers to God.
Liberation is what God eternally is, and He offers Himself to mankind.
He scatters liberation all around us. Confidence is the illumining
conscience deep within us and our fulfilling inheritance.
God says to man, "My son, I have all confidence in you because you are of me."
Man says to God, "Father, I have full confidence in myself because You are for me."
Sri Chinmoy (1931-2007)
Indian spiritual teacher
From a speech delivered in the United Nation's Church Center, 1970
Oh, how great peace and quietness would he possess
who should cut off all vain anxiety and place
all his confidence in God.
Thomas a Kempis (1380-1471)
Catholic monk, author
The Last Word:
Don't waste life in doubts and fears; spend yourself on the
work before you, well assured that the right performance of
this hour's duties will be the best preparation
for the hours and ages that will follow it.

American essayist, poet, Transcendentalist
