come as you are

"If we imagine we have to put on our Sunday moods before we come near to God, we will never come near Him. We must come as we are." ~ Oswald Chambers

Don't wait. Don't wait until everything is just right to come before God. Don't wait until you've figured out this or that to come before God. Don't wait until you've taken care of a sin issue to come before God. Don't wait until after your vacation to come before God. Don't wait until after you move to come to God. Don't wait until you have some quality time to come before God. Don't wait until this grumpy crabbiness passes. Don't wait.

Come now. Come just as you are. He already knows absolutely every single thing about you, will forgive you, still loves you. He's available right this minute even though you don't have your Sunday clothes on. He's seen bad attitudes before and yours won't keep Him away. Life will never be perfect nor will you. So just come. He's whispering your name.

Come.

Blessings,
Tammy ~@~

I've heard it said, "You don't have to clean up before you take a bath". It's the same with God. He takes us as we are... filth and all!

For this I, for one, am ever grateful!
