I made this work for multiple reasons: I think about the mercy and grace extended to me from God and I consider how I can act in that manner towards others. The small text discusses the cycle we go through of beginning from doubt to faith to lack of understanding to clarity/fully realized in our life, resulting in the fact that we need everything working in our lives. This work can become profane in thinking that we don't need anything, yet in fact we need everything.
