Just As I Am by Travis Cottrell

This song explains the name of my blog. We are saved just as we are. We do not have “clean up” our lives to come to Jesus. He works on that after we come to Him. This is a modern version of an old hymn, with an incredible new chorus added, which holds special meaning to me in my recovery that Jesus is working in my life. Pay special attention to the chorus:

VERSE 1:
Just as I am, without one plea
But that Thy blood was shed for me
And that Thou bidst me come to Thee
O Lamb of God, I come, I come

VERSE 2:
Just as I am, and waiting not
To rid my soul of one dark blot
To Thee whose blood can cleanse each spot
O Lamb of God, I come, I come

(NEW) CHORUS:
I come broken to be mended
I come wounded to be healed
I come desperate to be rescued
I come empty to be filled
I come guilty to be pardoned
By the blood of Christ the Lamb
And I’m welcomed with open arms
Praise God, just as I am

VERSE 3:
Just as I am, I would be lost
But mercy and grace my freedom bought
And now to glory in Your cross
Oh Lamb of God I come, I come

(NEW) CHORUS

Saved: Just As I Am

I never wanted to be attracted to men, and didn't understand why I was. God showed me the answer was not for Him to remove the attraction. It was for me to submit to Him and, with His help, live a holy life. He saved me just as I was, and then He set about transforming me into what He wants me to be. - Jerry Stubblefield
