I need a bridge built

Great blessings belong to those who fear and respect the Lord, who are happy to do what he commands. Their descendants will be given power on earth. Those who do right will be greatly blessed. Their family will be very rich, and their goodness will continue forever. A light shines in the dark for those who are good, for those who are merciful, kind, and fair. (Psalm 112:1-4) We work hard, do our best to raise our families in the right way, are loyal and devoted friends - so why is it wrong to think there might be a little blessing waiting for us? I imagine we might believe blessings are equated with our "doing" rather than our "being". We get so focused on the "doing" of life, we forget the original intent is for us to "be". "Beings" are content in "being" what God has created them to "be". It gives a sense of great satisfaction and ultimate blessing to those who learn to walk not in the "doing" of life,
