Psalm 16: A Heart That's Secure

"Lord, you have assigned me my portion and my cup; you have made my lot secure.  The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; surely I have a delightful inheritance.  I will praise the LORD who counsels me; even at night my heart instructs me." 
Psalm 16: 5-7
LORD, You are the God who knows me, who has my heart.  You know my every desire, my every wish, my every thought.  You are intimately acquainted with each and every feeling that touches me.  You know every reason and every cause for every wistful look and quiet moment and soft smile and racking sob.  You know exactly what springs me into exultant joy.  And everything perverse in me is laid bare before You.
You know who I am , who I was, and who I will be.  You know and understand all my words and fully know every intent behind them.
Knowing full well, You are the God who rescues me.  You give me worth and then set me up above all the mire I could have sunk in.
LORD, You are the God who knows me; and knowing full well, loves me.  You have my heart.  And every heart is known to You.
I lay my heart bare before You, God.  Even before the people in this world.  Knowing You hold it, I will not fear.
