Just as He Was

Mark 4:35-36
On that day, when evening had come, he said to them, “Let us go across to the other side.” And leaving the crowd behind, they took him with them in the boat, just as he was. 
Such an interesting detail.
"They took him... just as he was"
What does that mean?

They took you
without anything extra.
Without a bag, or a magic stick, or...

Just you as you are.

How do I take you?
With a grain of salt?
With my assumptions?
With my own agenda?
With my hopes & fears & expectations?

What would it be like to take you,
just as you are?

I think you would surprise me.
I think you would challenge my assumptions.
I think you would push my boundaries.
I think you would invite me to see
the world and the people around me with new eyes.
I think I would stand in awe and wonder of you.

Come into my life today
just as you are.
Remove the scales, assumptions, & cultural layers from my eyes
so that I can see you
just as you are.
