We're born into this world, live an unknown number of years, and then leave the world. We didn't bring anything with us when we came and won't be able to take anything with us when we leave; we're just passing through. While we are in the world, we depend upon everything that comes from God to survive ~ we are basically "nothing." But we can become something, in fact, something truly beautiful, if we'll just let God come into our lives to transform us. All we need to do is to remain open and God will do the work. It just seems such a natural thing for us to do.
