Come as you are

COME AS YOU ARE.

I saw this quote printed on the back of a girl’s jacket in a picture online. I paused for a moment and instantly knew this statement to be true for me and my relationship with God. Before becoming a Christian I had mixed emotions and major reservations regarding the Christian faith. I always felt that I would never quite measure up to being a perfect person for God. Because I always felt like I was messing up, making mistakes, that I was not good enough, and just downright not pure enough to meet with this God that I heard so much about from others who seemed so genuinely happy, secure, confident and always hopeful!

I used to feel like I would be that one puzzle piece that would not fit into the bigger picture; like there would be no space for me to contribute something of worth. Boy, was I so wrong! My journey with meeting God on a personal level shook up every lie and negative perception I had on the Christian faith and showed me a life with Him that has been filled with nothing but His goodness, His unconditional love, His unwavering faith in me, and His oceans of grace.

THE TRUTH IS…

We do not need to have it “all together” before coming to Him. We can come to Him exactly as we are, in our moments of weakness, with our baggage, with our fears, insecurities, sickness, shame, and pain. He loves us regardless and He will embrace us and shower us with His grace; He will make us new, He will make us whole.

God doesn’t want something from us, He simply wants us.
C.S.Lewis

COME AS YOU ARE.

THE TRUTH IS…

No matter what we have done, or how far we stray from Him, He will always respond to us. He will never turn away from us, and He will always meet with us personally.

All those the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never drive away.
John 6:37

COME AS YOU ARE.

THE TRUTH IS…

Even as mature seasoned christians we will slip up and make mistakes; however we can always come to Him and start afresh. We do not need to wait it out, and try figure it out alone, or pray a million prayers, or fast forever before pressing the refresh button with Him.

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.
1 John 1:9

COME AS YOU ARE.

THE TRUTH IS…

God hears, sees and knows it all. We can’t outrun Him, or hide away from Him. We do not need to let our shame or our guilt hold us back, or keep us ensnared and tangled. The truth is that we can bring our dirt to Him, and He will still love us all the same, He will heal our brokenness, and He will make us whole again with His unconditional love. All we need to do is come to Him, call on Him, and lay it all before Him, and He will respond.

I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Romans 8:38-39
