Pleasing to You

May the words of my mouth
and the meditation of my heart
be pleasing to You,
Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.
Psalm 19
It is my desire to keep my heart
full of thoughts that line up with His.
I cannot trust my mind to go off on its own
because in a new-york-second I can go off
into self focus, self centeredness, 
self righteousness...
And not even know how I got there.
I have been barraged all day long.
I am so grateful the Lord hears my cry
and rescues me from myself.
Because of your unfailing love, 
I can enter Your house;
Lead me in the right path, O Lord,
or my enemies will conquer me.
Make your way plain for me to follow.
His great love keeps us and covers us.
I love the simple yet beautiful
prayers of the psalmist.
May everything about me be pleasing to You, God,
because You are my strength
and my salvation everyday.
In my self, I have no hope; 
yet I have hope a million times over in You.
Make Your way plain for me to follow.
May the words of my mouth
and the thoughts in my heart
bless Your name.
Because You are worthy a million times over
to receive any glory my life can give You.
