- Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Heb 11:1 (KJV)
- Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. Prov. 3:5,6 (KJV)

I walked down the hall the other day and saw this:
I stopped to straighten it. Noticing again the shelf that my Grandpa made and gave to me. I thought about how I liked the arrangement I have there and specialness of the shelf. :)Then it hit me -- our faith sometimes slips. Just like the word on my shelf slipped... It's still hanging on, but... not quite centered... not quite where it should be. It's not at the optimal balance for our lives. It gets outtawhack. So, I considered then if MY faith is where it should be. Right now. Is it centered and balanced? I probably don't think about where I place my faith that often. I think about what I'm doing in regards to sin and attitude. But I don't think about the fact that many times my faith is more in myself than it is in God. ("Bonk" on the head! Huh?) I am so secure in my salvation that sometimes that's where "faith" ends for me. And then I take on all the stress and worry of life and off I go. That's not what He wants for me and that's not what He planned for me. His plans... Ohhhh, yeahhh.Just another reminder to me. I should be conscious of my faith and who I'm placing it in/on at any given moment. It's too easy to take the reigns back from God and direct my own path.
