Sometimes when I need a little motivation, when I feel like nothing is right and nothing will ever be right, I look at hymns. I LOVE hymns. They are so true, so pure. A lot of them are directly from Bible verses, and that really lifts me up. This is one of my all time favorite hymns, I sing it to Joshua every night.

1. 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.
Praise the mount! I'm fixed upon it,
mount of thy redeeming love.

2. Here I raise mine Ebenezer;
hither by thy help I'm come;
and I hope, by thy good pleasure,
safely to arrive at home.
Jesus sought me when a stranger,
wandering from the fold of God;
he, to rescue me from danger,
interposed his precious blood.

3. 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, O take and seal it,
seal it for thy courts above.

It is so true! I LOVE the part I made bold up above at the end of the second verse. Jesus sought ME, he came looking just for me! How amazing is that? He knew I needed him to save me, that I was a horrible sinner and he was the only one who had the power to save me, so he SOUGHT ME out and saved me! What an amazing God we serve. I hope this was a little boost of motivation for someone today, I know it helps me SO often.

Have a great Thursday friends! Love Love ♥
