My loving God, you have turned my complaining into gratitude, my screams of despair into proclamations of joy. How can I help but explode with praises and vow to spend eternity in thanksgiving to you? You are my hope and salvation, the morning sun and the evening star, my shade in the desert heat, my warmth in the cold of night. You are the Bread of Life, and life-giving springs when my soul is parched and dry. You are the answer to my agonizing questions, the fulfillment of my deepest longings. I am yours, O God, yours forever. Make my life a perpetual offering of praise. For the glory of Jesus Christ. Amen.
