I Have to Laugh

I have to laugh, Lord.

You know how I value security--especially the financial kind--
and must stretch to trust you (instead of myself)
to provide for my family's needs.

You know that I like predictability
and struggle to trust you when things change.

You know how personally I take rejection,
and must strive for your approval instead of man's.

So you made me a writer.
I have to laugh,
or I just might cry.
