Come As You Are: Wear the Real You!




“We often get confused of our identity, of who we are because of the people, culture and society we circle with.“
- Prototype, Jonathan Martin (non - verbatim)


You don't have to try so hard, to give it all away.


Before you continue reading, i want you to watch this video, especially for the ladies. 


Our brokenness, we often hide them. We don’t want the world to see our vulnerability; we put our masks for people to conceal the bruises that we get from our challenges so that the world cannot laugh at us.

Today, we are fascinated by perfection, glamour, by fame that when we see a flaw, we throw stone and we judge. No wonder why most people want to show that they are invincible and fierce. The question is, are we happy? Are we really satisfied by the shout and limelight we get every time we try to fit-in into this society?

If you are tired for aiming the standard this world has set, there’s One that can give you rest and love you needed. There’s One that’s amazed by every single detail of your life and love you just the way you are. The one that can love you more than you can ever love yourself, and can accept you despite of your failures. The one that you can run into whenever you are broken. The one that will hug you whilst of your failures and despair.

So come, come as you are with no pretensions. In Him, we are not judged and marginalized because of the language we speak, our social status, skin color, gender and achievements. In Him, we are perfection.


He calls us beloved, we are His perfection.
We are His’ and He is ours.

So if you’re ready, to be loved and to come as a real you, go and open your bible and read through His words.

"Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful."-Joshua 1:8 



Here are more inspirational quotes from Jonathan Martin's book:
“Our scars reveal who we are. The fact that we have experienced profound suffering in life—the fact that we carry what may seem to be unsightly scars—does not disqualify us from following Jesus. It may be precisely what qualifies us.”
― Jonathan Martin, Prototype: What Happens When You Discover You're More Like Jesus Than You Think?

“It turns out that knowing how loved we are by God makes all the difference in the kind of people we will become.”
― Jonathan Martin

who are you really, behind the avatars you’ve created for yourself? What are you covering up? What are you afraid of? What are you hoping for? Where are you going?”
― Jonathan Martin, Prototype: What Happens When You Discover You're More Like Jesus Than You Think?

"It turns out that knowing how loved we are by God makes all the difference in the kind of people we will become

  3. That video...honestly they all looked beautiful in a whole different way. There facial features were distorted especially the eyes. Distorting a lot. As a natural red head, my invisible eyelashes is something I'll always hate. When I went short blonde I decided I will let my natural hair/color grow. Then started only wearing mascara. I hardly even use hairspray and rarely straighten it. Still looked at as a sex symbol like all woman have been notorious for since Monroe. Still feels uncomfortable. Still have many flaws...but far more confident than I've ever been.

    1. Because the world is labeling us so much. Atleast we should know our identity in Christ

  4. Love this song. Inspiring and encouraging.
    I could agree with you. Sometimes media can be a powerful tool convincing us that we should be something or someone else. We forget that most of the time, they're selling out something. We need to remember that we are enough and we are special.

    1. True! Theyre insisting you that you need something when in fact it's not. :)
