Remember the classic Bill Bright Campus Crusade tract, "The Four Spiritual Laws"? I found a version of it online. The original started out, "God loves you, and has a wonderful plan for your life!".

The problem, of course, is our stubborn preference for the self-directed life. I look at the diagram today and say, "ouch!". It is one way of testing the empirical claims of Christianity. I read Christ's assessment of human nature contained in the gospels, looked within myself, and said, "that's me". The only remaining question was, was Christ who he said he was, and was he able to do what he said he could and would do? My experience subsequent to placing my trust in him says, "yes!".
Blind faith? Hardly. Reasonable faith? Yes. Confirmed faith? Most certainly.
You can read the whole thang here.
Update: Here's something closer to the original.
