Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing
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.
I remember a time in my life when I was pulled ever so slightly at one point or another into sin. Sometimes I was aware of what I was doing and then there were times that I spiritually woke up became conscious of the fact and realized that I had detoured from the path and His righteousness.
After much thought, I made a decision.
Was I going to keep falling into the same old sin and keep going around the same mountain over and over again or was I going to change some behaviors, attitudes and my environment that would enable me to make better life choices?
Compared to eternity, my life is only as a second here on earth and eternity is a long time to be wrong.
My prayer: Oh Father, bind my wandering heart to thee.
