Was reminded this evening of some words from the Hymn "Come Thou Fount Of Every Blessing" (music here).
O to grace how great a debtor
Daily I’m constrained to be!
Let Thy goodness, like a fetter
Bind my wandering heart to Thee.
Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it,
Prone to leave the God I love;
Here’s my heart, O take and seal it,
Seal it for Thy courts above.
Prone to wander Lord I feel it...oh how true are those words and how it saddens me as I take those steps of coldness away from God's grace. And yet, however many steps I have gone away it is only one step back and I am safe back in his loving arms. God's grace to me never ceases to amaze me...I just am blown away that he sent Jesus to die for a sinner like me!
