Pleasing to Him

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 move
into thoughts steeped in doubt, anxiety, 
fear and discouragement--
and not even know how I got there.
I am so grateful the Lord hears my cry
and rescues me from myself.
The Lord has been continually reminding me
of His great kindness and generous compassion.

Return to the LORD your God, 
for He is merciful and compassionate, 
slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. 
Joel 2:13
All I know is I am so grateful for His mercy, 
His compassion and His unfailing love.
He longs to be gracious to me,
and I long to be pleasing to Him.

Create in me a pure heart, God,
that the meditations of my heart 
and the words of my mouth
would be pleasing in Your sight.
My prayer for each day is that 
I would be transformed more and more
into the image of Your Son and 
that I would live a life that is
wholly pleasing to You.
