One of my favorite hymns of all time, that isn't actually in the LDS Hymn book (I don't know why), is Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing. I randomly found this song stuck in my head after church today. It was never mentioned or sang, but I suddenly couldn't stop thinking about it.
I especially love the third verse. It says,
"Oh to grace, how great a debtor
Daily I'm constrained to be.
Let that grace now, 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, Oh take and seal it,
Seal it for Thy courts above."
Lately I've been doing a lot of wandering... and a lot of messing up. But today I knelt down in prayer for the first time in a while and it felt like the words of this song. I know I've made a lot of mistakes, but I'm going to keep trying to stay close to my Heavenly Father. I need more strength right now than ever before, and I'm grateful to know that "in his strength, I can do all things." (Alma 26:12)
