Come As You Are

Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. Matthew 11:28-29

I come just as I am to Jesus.
I come happy—He rejoices with me.
I come sorrowful—He comforts me.
I come hurting—He heals me.
I come tired—He offers me rest.
I come fearful—He provides me peace.
I come unsure—He creates hope.
I come insecure—He assures me of His presence.
Poor in spirit—He makes me rich in relationships.
Humble of heart—He fills me with grace.
Soul starved—He feeds me with His limitless love.
I come to Christ—He accepts me.

“The Sovereign Lord has given me a well-instructed tongue, to know the word that sustains the weary. He wakens me morning by morning, wakens my ear to listen like one being instructed” Isaiah 50:4.

Therefore, come as you are and receive the grace of God.
Come with your accomplishments and place them at the feet of Jesus as an offering of thanksgiving for His favor.
Come with your anxieties and receive Christ’s peace.
Come with your striving over issues out of your control and trust God with the outcomes. Come with your grieving heart and receive the Holy Spirit’s comfort and concern.
Come as you are and cast your cares in your Savior’s gentle, loving, capable hands.

“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand” (Isaiah 41:10).
Heavenly Father, I come to You with my sorrows and success. I leave them in Your care. Amen
