Contentment

I was meditating on contentment and I wrote this poem that borrows heavily from Psalm 16

Gracious Heavenly Father from Above,
I come to you aware of the treachery of my heart.
I am prone to lies of the enemy about your character.
I say to the Lord “You are my Lord;
I have no good apart from you.”

I run to you because you are my refuge.
Your truth will guide me and be my shield.
Fullness of joy is found nowhere other than your courts
And pleasures forever more are guaranteed when I come near to you.

When I look back to the cross
I see all you have done for me
And am reminded of my unworthiness,
With you I have a beautiful iheritance.

In you I have all I need.
There is need to question my lot.
You are wise and have given me what is best.
Since you are the Sovereign One, who is my portion and fills my cup,
The lines have fallen for me in pleasant places.
