1 Samuel 2.9
No one makes it in this life by sheer muscle!
this is the way to live, the only way to live - to be fully depending on you every single moment of our life. we can never make it through life on our own, in our own effort, in our own striving and trying and getting by and whatever on our own - all good things, but utterly pointless without you, without your grace, without your provision, without your fruitfulness - without you as foundation. thank you that we can depend on you, that because of you we can more than make it in this life, by moving through you, with you, we can do more amazing things than we ever could on our own, we could reach out to so many more people than we could on our own, we could have a significant purpose more than what we could ever come up with on our own.
