Song of the Week - "Come as You Are"

When I was a child I remember reading a devotion where one girl and her mother drove around the neighborhood picking up her friends for a “come as you are” party. It didn’t matter what the girls were doing at the time or what they were wearing, they needed to come just as they were. This devotion has stuck in my mind for many years. This is a great picture of how God sees us and how we can come to him no matter how we look, act, or feel. He will clean us, heal us, love us, or give us whatever it is that we need.

Now, as a writer, I look back on the author of that devotion and wonder if my words will stick in people’s minds for years to come. Can/will I say anything that will lead people to Christ? Can/will I plant any seed that may have the slightest effect on anyone’s life?

I don’t know. But I do know that I can’t stop trying. God wants people to come to Him just as they are. Think about all the people in your life that you know need the Savior. Share this week’s song with them. Maybe it will have a positive influence on them.
