Contentment, sometimes, seems out of my grasp;
So many things, for which I long!
It’s so easy to selfishly forget,
That it’s Christ to whom I belong.
I forget His promises to provide
Things that are important for me.
He chooses the path of my lot in life,
And He longs to help me to see,
That whatever He brings into my life
Are the things that He knows are best.
And to know I have Him to lean upon,
Then, He will provide all the rest.
Dear God, help me learn to be so content
With the things You give me in life.
Then, with joy, I can face each brand new day
Without living with inner strife!
Help me to be obedient to you;
And carefully lean on Your Word,
Knowing fully, You have charge of my plans;
And each of my prayers has been heard!
