Come thou fount...

This Pinterest find deserves a post of its own.

It's obviously beautiful to look at, and I'm already convinced that I'll be making something like this to hang in my house somewhere.

But it also speaks to my soul. It's a line from Come Thou Fount (please listen to the video below if you've never heard it), which is one of my top five favorite praise and worship songs. I start to cry every single time I hear it at the exact same line.

Oh 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.

I picture my Lord, faithful as ever, watching me make the same mistakes, commit the same sins over and over again. I picture Him watching my heart wander, and it just shatters me. But then I remember that I'm no longer a prisoner to my sin because Jesus paid it all. I may be prone to wander, but He's always waiting for me to return. All to Him I owe.

Ryan, I nearly cried when I read this post. Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing is hands-down my favorite hymn and that line is one of my favorites. Thank you, thank you for this post.
