'"I handed you a land for which you did not work, towns you did not build. And here you are now living in them and eating from vineyards and olive groves you did not plant.
we have nothing but gratitude, lord. we may work and toil all we want but without your blessing that shines on and rains down on us our efforts will come to nothing. you are the reason why we have fruit, why we have provision, why we have something great and beautiful to look forward. we are truly fully dependent on you, lord. our hard work and everything else happen after you bless us and the result of our in our lives happens when we call you our master and trust and love and obey you. how great it is to be your follower because you not only look after us but you look out for us! what security and peace we have in you and you alone and not on ourselves or what and what we don't have. you are the run of our life and we praise you.
