A Psalm of Thanksgiving
By Matt Stavros
I was searching for status in pay and promotions
I was married to money and felt pressured to provide
My hope was hanging in stocks and savings
I was wondering in worry and fear filled my mind
I was insecure and grasping no ears to hear what the Father was asking
I defined my identity as what I could make of me
Constant disappointment seemed to meet my every moment
I could no longer hide my selfishness and pride
At the end of my rope I surrendered control
Free to take hold of my one living Hope
Just as he’s a Father
First I am a son
He freely and fully gave me
A gift of perfect love
More precious than accomplishments
I’ve sought and got and earned
My perfect joy and great delight
Unto his heart I turn
Now I thank God he freed me from comparing, pride, performing and pushing
He holds my heart and leads my life
He always does good to me
Now I can sing in sweet surrender and submit to simplicity
I am his son and I am enough
He always does good to me
