Is your Faith in a box?

We have been blessed with new neighbors!
They are busy unpacking boxes as you can see 

 And in my usual style, I got to thinking..
did you unpack your Faith after your last move? 

Or is your Faith taped up in a box, sealed tight and placed on a shelf at the top of your closet so 

...or do you wear it out on RARE occasions, like a fancy dress or suit?

Or do you only wear it when you NEED it, like a snow jacket? 

Or is it under your clothes like SPANX, no one else knows you are wearing them, but you no longer have unsightly bumps, it just smooths everything out and you LOOK & FEEL BETTER.  It's not like you are wearing a sign that says, "Hey I have Spanx on," but YOU KNOW IT and you just feel good. 
(I guess for you guys out there, this would be the equivalent of the drawers with holes in them you still have from college, we know you have them and love to wear them.) 

Or do you wear your FAITH on your FEET? The actual shoes you are wearing, they go everywhere with you, PROTECTING you EVERY MOMENT. 
And people can SEE them too. They might say, "Hey, I really like your shoes, where did you get them?" 

Or is is like the over-sized bag high on your shoulder and you keep HITTING people with it and they get annoyed.  And then furthermore, you have to comment on the size of everyone else's bag or lack thereof too. 

Well, I have to run and do some unpacking myself...and go warn the neighbors they need to be careful what they put out in their trash, 
I might take a picture for my blog.

    Love this blog. I like to think of my faith being that place in my heart that was once empty. It has always been there. I just didn't know what it was. After years of trying to fill it with material things or good deeds, I realized all I needed to do was ask Jesus to come in and dwell in that empty place. His love, forgiveness, and mercy filled the empty space and overflowed into my very being. Now all I need is Him. And I give Him all the glory for the many blessings in my life.
