“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 Lord, take and seal it
Seal it for Thy courts above”
Come Thou Fount, Come Thou King
These lyrics grabbed onto my heart during worship this weekend. As I sang, God put it on my heart that grace isn’t just something He offers; Grace is Someone. His Grace is Jesus. His Goodness is Jesus. What a reminder.
There are days where I wake up and immediately bind myself to Grace, knowing without Him I am not going to be able to make it through. There are other days where I wander from God’s Goodness and try to take on the world in my own strength.
As we begin a new week that will be filled with planned adventures and unforeseen obstacles, I pray we take time to ask God to seal our heart with His love and grace for this journey. May we remember not to rely on our own strength, but to rest in the knowledge that it is His Goodness, His Grace that carries us.
All need grace and all is grace, friends.
