have you read it lately?



It sits right over there on the sidebar, but tonight it caught my eye...
The phrase, "whose confidence is in Him"

Confidence.

Where is my confidence?

Is it in Him?  
Not lately...
It has been in my performance at work.
It has been in the politeness of my children.
It has been in my remembering events and dates.
It has been in how many people call me friend.

You know what?  It only takes one unkind word to shake my confidence.  
It only takes one sideways glance for my heart to race wondering what I have done.

Oh Father, help me place my confidence back in You.
