No work without good intention
No joy without a thankful look toward God
No conversation without a thought of God
No suffering without God-given patience
No injury done without repentance
No mistake without critical judgment on it

No one in need of help without a small gift
No sufferer let go uncomforted
No sickness suffered without forbearance
No night without self-examination
Oh Lord, I'm growing up.
I am beginning to realize how important it is that I make decisions.
I would be afraid except for the fact that I know you'll guide me.
The world can use me and my talents - but where?
And when you show me, help me to be generous enough to respond.
