Prone to Wander, Lord, I Feel it

"With my whole heart I have sought You;
Oh, let me not wander from Your commandments! (Psalm 119:10)

Sometimes, even when our hearts long to seek God, the distraction of life can draw us away from Him and His Word.

Too often we find ourselves distracted and drifting, instead of having our hearts and minds focused on the Savior who loves us and gave Himself for us.

In those seasons of wandering, our heart of hearts doesn't want to drift from God.

But, like Paul, we often do what we don't want to do (Romans 7:19).

We desperately need to turn back to the Shepherd of our heart who can draw us to Himself.

How grateful we can be for a patient, compassionate heavenly Father whose grace is always sufficient, even when we are prone to wander!
