Dear God, let me eagerly give it all away. Let me expend all of my energy and resources pursuing your will. Let me welcome poverty and depletion; you will only refill me when I am empty.

I look to periods of deprivation with fear. I squander periods of plenty on selfish expenditures of funds, time, and effort.

God, my dear Lord, direct my mind and intentions. Let me first seek your will. When I have resources, let me abandon myself to pursuing you. When I have lack, let me then devote myself to trusting in you ever more intently.

Let me, in this way, be fully devoted. All in.

(Letter #1101)
