When I am tired, I want to be exhausted because I have completed the work you have for me.
When I laugh, fill me with joy to share. Surround me with the Good News of your goodness.
When I am rich, let it be in your mercies. And when I am poor, may it be because I gave it all away.
Speak the truth in me. When I open my mouth, let it be your words.
And when I suffer, let it be because this world mocks me, let me count it joy that I am crucified with Christ and let it fill my heart with peace and assurance because I have stood strong when my body was weak and I shouted your grace when they told me to shut my mouth and when I suffer, may my suffering be worked together for good because I suffered loving Jesus!
When I die, let it be because your plan is done in me. And when I open my eyes in death let it be because I will forever have eternity by the side of my Jesus that I have longed for my entire life.
