I said to the Lord, "You are my Lord;
apart from You I have no good thing"
Apart from You I have no beautiful thing.
Apart from You I have no best thing.
Apart from You I have no bountiful thing.
Apart from You I have no "at ease" thing.
Apart from You I have no cheerful thing.
Apart from You I have no fine thing.
Then there's John 15:5 when Jesus says, "I am the vine, you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit. Apart from me you can do NOTHING."
Nothing. Never. No. Cannot. Nay. Nowhere. None. Without.
Without, indeed! Because if apart from Him there is no beautiful thing...no best thing...no bountiful thing...nothing at ease...no cheerful thing...no fine thing...now that is truly to live without!
To live apart from Him is to do without. But to remain in Him? Beauty. Bounty. Cheer. At ease. His best! :)
