As You Are

 “God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8

Do you believe
that the God of Jesus
loves you
beyond worthiness and unworthiness?

Beyond fidelity and infidelity
that He
loves you
in the morning sun and in the evening rain

That He loves you
When your intellect denies it,
your emotions refuse it,
your whole being rejects it.

Do you believe that God loves
without condition or reservation and
loves you
this moment

As you are
and not
you should be.
