Hey y'all! I hope you've had a wonderful week!
Can we just take a moment to praise God and thank Him for all His goodness and faithfulness?
I am so excited for you guys to see these wallpapers! You'll probably notice that this month's wallpapers are circling around the hymn "Come Thou Fount." I cannot tell you how many times this month alone I have heard "Come Thou Fount." I would be listening to Pandora and working on homework and I would hear several different versions of the song. There would be a contemporary worship version, an alternative rock version, an indie version, and just a piano and vocalist version.
So pretty much, this song has been in my head for an entire month. The very last verse of the song is the one that challenges me the most:
"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."
What do these words mean to me?
Every single day, every single moment, I am in debt to God's grace. There is no way, without the grace of the Lord Jesus, that I will ever be out of that debt. But God in His goodness and mercy He binds my heart to Him and He redeems me to Him every single day. I know my sin nature causes my heart to stray and it grieves me every time I sin and turn my back on Him. I need Him to take my heart to seal it and bind me forever to His love and grace.
With that, here are the wallpapers that are centered around "Come Thou Fount." I hope they are sweet daily reminders to you of God's continual grace and mercy towards us.
This month, I have a very special treat for you all! I made wallpapers for you computers! If this is something you really like and want me to continue, just let me know! I've had so much doing these for y'all and I hope you love them!
As usual, if you go and like More Than Sparrow's Facebook page, there will be some extra goodies. Also, you'll still have access to all of the old wallpapers and special extras!
And for your listening pleasure, here is one of the versions of Come Thou Fount that I stumbled on this month. It's by Benjamin Dunn and Friends. They are an alternative Christian group and very good. I highly recommend you check them out of Spotify!
I adore you all!!
