Oh. We do, don't we? 

I''m so foolish.

oh, NEAT verse to go with that image. (i was photographing spider webs this week, too.) praying for you and your family, this morning... may the One who created the miracle of the spider and its web, give you strength, even in the midst of fragile places...

Beautiful. Tonight is Chinese New Year -- this a poetic image for the last day of the year.

Perfect.  I love it.

Such a good reminder ... where do I put my trust?

I have. I do.

Love that picture and the text. There's this kind of acky passage in Isaiah 59 where the prophet slams the ones who do evil and pretend not to, and he calls them all kinds of nasty things and talks about spiders and eating their eggs, and well, ick. Anyway, he's talking about the cobwebs they spin, and says "their cobwebs are useless for clothing; they cannot cover themselves with what they make." 

I suppose that whenever we rely on anything but him, it's as good as trying to support ourselves with fragile spiderwebs or cover our exposure with cobwebs.

I was caught up in the spider's web earlier this week. Trusting in all the wrong stuff. What a relief to know God is not like that at all. He is worth trusting. In all things.

Love the photo and the scripture.  Isn't God amazing.  He created this woven silk that appears to be so fragile, but yet it has such great strength and elasticity.  I truly believe we as children of God are the same.  We are made strong, in our weakness.

We are attracted to the shiny, sparkly, temporary, aren't we? Good reminder.

Wonderful analogy from Job -- if we forget God, we can be drawn in to Satan's web as he proceeds to devour us. Those chains of sin seem like glittering strands we can easily brush aside, until we are caught. Praise God that He is faithful, merciful and forgiving even when we forget Him.

What a perfect picture for this verse Michelle. It is all too easy to put trust in the things that can't possibly hold.

Was praying for you, too, today Leslie-- we are on the same prayer page!

may I always rely on the Lord and never be caught in the enemy's trap...
