Come as You are

Merry Christmas my friends. Some of you are joyous today, and others intensely sad.  No matter how you are feeling, I’d love to share a beautiful song with you. It is Crowder’s latest song, Come as You Are*. It perfectly describes the love and freedom we have in Jesus. Here is the https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yjgioXrnEME for the YouTube video. If you have five minutes, I promise you’ll be refreshed.

Here are the beautiful lyrics:

Come out of sadness, From wherever you’ve been

Come broken-hearted, Let rescue begin

Come find your mercy, Oh sinner come kneel

Earth has no sorrow, That heaven can’t heal

Earth has no sorrow, That heaven can’t heal

 

So lay down your burdens

Lay down your shame

All who are broken

Lift up your face

Oh wanderer come home

You’re not too far

So lay down your hurt

Lay down your heart

Come as you are

 

There’s hope for the hopeless, And all those who’ve strayed

Come sit at the table, Come taste the grace

There’s rest for the weary, Rest that endures

Earth has no sorrow, That heaven can’t cure

 

So lay down your burdens

Lay down your shame

All who are broken

Lift up your face

Oh wanderer come home

You’re not too far

So lay down your hurt

Lay down your heart

Come as you are

Come as you are

 

Fall in his arms, Come as you are

There’s joy for the morning, Oh sinner be still

Earth has no sorrow, That heaven can’t heal

Earth has no sorrow, That heaven can’t heal

 

So lay down your burdens

Lay down your shame

All who are broken

Lift up your face

Oh wanderer come home

You’re not too far

So lay down your hurt

Lay down your heart

Come as you are

Come as you are

Come as you are

So, on this beautiful Christmas morning, I pray each of us will lay down our burdens, shame and past hurts. I pray we will take a few moments to be still and reflect on the God who came to us, to rescue us from our brokenness and pain. We don’t have to clean ourselves up, or do anything for Him. We can come to Him, just as we are.

Merry Christmas dear friends.
