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.
This song has been one of my favorite songs to sing for years! And I love to sing the last verse because there are so many times that my heart wants to wander. Wander from this or from that or not give up this or give up that for the cause of Christ. I pray everyday that my heart would be sealed by God's hand and nothing else! So that one day I will will be able to sing praises of His grace and love in His marvelous courts and worship Him all day long forever!
Wow, ever think of forever?? It's like.....well....forever! :)The idea of forever is slightly frightening that is for sure but I am really excited! Imagine, God welcoming you at the Pearly Gates, and every day, (even though there is no time there) you get to run around and sing, play games, worship, eat amazing food, and the River of Life? you betcha! Gonna have water fights ;) It all just makes me laugh and smile and I honestly cannot wait. Seeing Jesus all the time and being able to ask those questions that you've been waiting to ask Him! And meeting all of the people in the Bible that I've read about and studied for my whole life! Whoa! So fun! I can just see story time with David, or Moses or Adam and talking about Creation....sigh sounds well Heavenly!
