A Relationship…

26 01 2010

The last two weeks my heart has been awakened once again – am I desiring to spend time with one of my friends.  You see I should be desirig to spend time with him almost daily but I don’t — I get distracted (TV, sports, the internet, etc).  I realized that I really desired to spend time with him – you see to me it is a Relationship and spending time with Him is not about Knowledge but getting to know his heart and his character.  Who is this person?  God.  I know that my heart loves him and I can’t stay away for very long – he brings me to himself —I tell him I won’t wonder but I will and I will run into him arms again.  You see the beauty of the Christian life is the ability to begin again (no matter what others say or do to you).  His mercies are new every morning.  I am so thankful for his love.

I think of the hymn…Come thou Fount and I included the lyrics here:

Come Thou fount of every blessing
Tune my heart to sing Thy grace
Streams of mercy never ceasing
Call for songs of loudest praise
Teach me some melodious sonnet
Sung by flaming tongues above
I’ll praise the mount I’m fixed upon it
Mount of Thy redeeming love

Here I raise my Ebenezer
Hither by Thy help I come
And I hope by Thy good pleasure
Safely to arrive at home
Jesus sought me when a stranger
Wondering from the fold of God
He, to rescue me from danger
Interposed His precious blood

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

Lord, thank you for being patient with me even when my heart wonders…
