“Although I am less than the less of all God’s people, this grace was given me: to preach to the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ.” Eph. 3:8
Praise God that He did not leave me complacent in my sin but He has made His face shine upon me that I might tell others about His unsearchable riches. Oh the humility of knowing that God plucked me outta sea of misery and death. What I am that He thought me worthy? I am an adulterer always leaving my first love for the fading things of this world that will burn up in the fire.
Here is my hearts cry, my plea:
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 feel as though I am one of those kids who has to wear a harness with a leash and God is holding onto the other end so that I won’t wander to far. I always thought those things were redonkulous and I vowed to myself that my child will never get caught wearing one of those, but now I am thankful that God has placed one upon my heart that I might not wonder to far from Him, His Word, or His Will. I am confident that God has His grip on me, for my heart does not want what God wants, but He is breaking me and slowly but surely I am beginning to have the Heart of God.
Thank you all for a great night of worship and being my church. Also thanks for explaining what a fetter was!!!
