In the Land that is Plentiful

Where Your streams of abundance flow
Blessed be Your name

Some of us have been there.  The place where everything comes easily and with leftovers.  It’s a land that never sees hunger or thirst.

It’s a place that makes it easy to forget about our faithful Provider.

After all, if we have everything we need, then why do we need Him?  We are lulled into an easy sense of self-sufficiency that seems to be ever-sustaining.  No matter what we do, we are the golden child!  We never think that one day it could all come crashing down.

Blessed Be Your Name

All He wants from us is our love and praise.  It sounds so easy.

And it’s still so hard.  We want to believe it’s all us.  That we can do it all on our own.

But there’s something missing.  Like Citizen Kane, we discover that all the wealth in the world can never make our lives complete.  We find that life can be better with no money, and more love than we can handle.

In the Land that is Plentiful, Where the Streams of Abundance flow,

Blessed Be Your Name!
