Prone to Wander…


Do you ever have those moments when someone tells you not to do something but you do it anyway? Maybe it’s to prove them wrong or perhaps it’s merely because you just need to find it out on your own. Yeah, welcome to my life. Despite warnings, cautions, and sensible advice given to me by people I know and trust, I still have to try most everything at least once. And usually, the more someone tries to dissuade me from doing something, the more I just have to do it – even if it scares me to death. I hope this is something that is cured with age. On the plus side, it does make for a rather interesting, and rarely dull, life.

My favorite hymn is Come Thou Fount. To most, it is a familiar tune (and if not, go YouTube it real quick… I’ll wait). I enjoy the whole song, but the third verse – at least in the version I have – is what really hits home for me.

Oh, to grace how great a debtor,

Daily I’m constrained to be!

Let Thy goodness, like a fetter,

Bind my wand’ring heart to Thee.

Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it,

Prone to leave the God I love;

Here’s my heart, oh, take and seal it,

Seal it for Thy courts above.

I bet at least a few of you sung your way through that. No judgment because I sure did! It took forever to write 😛

Jesus knows who I am, and He knows my heart. I can’t always understand why I do what I do, but I know that He does. And yet, He still loves me. Despite my wandering spirit, He always knows just how to bring me back to Him. What an amazing God!

Here’s my heart, oh, take and seal it,

Seal it for Thy courts above.
