Good thoughts on the topic. I especially like the specific examples you gave of people who had confidence in the Lord in spite of their troubles.
Like the adage, "God helps those who help themselves" the idea that self-confidence is a worthy goal has become almost foundational to post-modern thought. The points of your essay are clear and the topic was evident throughout.

This is a great essay — a bit of editing and you'll have something to sell, as well as tell. For example, near the end I think you meant "breeds" rather than "breads" and it should be René Descartes. Good work.
