Just Come


HE

asks you to

COME

&

bring all of your

stuff~

not just some of it

but all of it.

It doesn't matter how

dirty or tattered and torn your stuff is

as all

HE

wants is you.

So

you look in your suitcase

at all of your stuff

that you have kept hidden

from everyone but yourself~

that you carry around

every second of every day

because you just can't let it go.

But the bag is getting heavy,

yet you are so attached~

as what is in the bag

has defined who you are.

Who would you be without it?

HE

knows about the suitcase

& chuckles

because

HE

is just asking for you to

COME

because when you

COME

your stuff will be with you

& all

HE

wants

all of you & all of me.

HE

reaches out

HIS

hands

and then you see "them"

on this perfect

MAN~

the holes in

HIS

hands that hung

HIM

on the cross~

but

HE

has a smile on

HIS face,

Compassion in HIS eyes,

Love beaming from

HIS heart~

&

all that

HE

asks is for you & I to

COME

&

bring all your stuff~

even if it is dirty, tattered and torn.

Can you?

Do you?

Will you?

You look again at those hands

with the holes

from the nails

that hung

HIM on a cross

so that

HE could COME

to you & I

& all HE asks is~

"Come to ME. Get away with ME and you’ll recover your life.

I’ll show you how to take a real rest.

Walk with ME and work with ME~

watch how I do it.

Learn the unforced rhythms of grace.

I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you.

Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.” (Matthew 11:28)

Therefore, why not

COME

& bring your SUITCASE (listen to the song below)
