Come Back To Me

Hello!!! It’s great to have you here! Thank you for visiting! Please do well to leave comments when you’re through. Bless!


It was a few minutes to 2am.

I stood under the leaky shed, shivering. The rain had totally drenched me. I didn’t have an umbrella, I didn’t have anywhere to go and worst of all, I was four months’ pregnant. I looked at my protruded belly for the umpteenth time and shook my head in tears.

“See what you’ve gotten yourself into”, a voice within me accused me. “See where covetousness and disobedience have led you to.” The voice continued, “Think of your family, your father who is well-known in your church, your mother who is also a  teacher in your church. Look at your siblings. What standard have you laid down for them?”.


I shook my head. I remembered how much my father loved me. It was the thought of the fact that I had disappointed my father that was so painful. Well, they didn’t even know I was pregnant. I ran away from home after I found out. Even though I knew they would have been searching frantically for me, I still didn’t want to go back home. I feared the unknown. I feared my father would reject me and send me out. Going back home would be suicide! So I decided to stay outside my home, outside safety, I knew I was exposed to the dangers of the outside world. But I still stood under the rain, shivering, with my protruded belly…

It was a few minutes to 2am.

Many of us are this way. At a point, we did something very wrong to God. Something very sinful. We got pregnant with the sins of the world. Now, we’re so scared of going back to God, we’re scared of asking for His forgiveness. We know He’s our Father and although that should make us eager to ‘come back home’, that still makes us shiver the more. We think God hates us because of our sin, we think He wouldn’t accept us because we’ve gone against His will, we fear He’d reject us if we go back to him. So we run away, into the world, out of God’s mercies, out of His watchful eyes, into unsafety. We know it’s not safe out there but because we’re feeling so guilty, we’d rather stay outside where we’re bound to be attacked by the enemy(the devil) than go back to God, our Father.


Are you in such a situation? You think you’ve committed more than enough sins that God is so mad at you? The good news is God isn’t mad at you. The devil wants you to think God doesn’t want to accept you. The devil wants you to keep living in insecurity, in guilt, in total condemnation. That’s not what God wants. God wants you to come back to Him. Forget whatever sin you’ve committed. Forget the uncountable wrongs you’ve done. God’s not looking at your sins, He’s concerned about you. He loves you.

“Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool”- Isaiah 1:18 [KJV]

God, your Father is saying, “Quit running away and come back to me. I still love you and I always will. No matter the number of sins you’ve done in the past, I still have the power to wash you clean.” Jesus has the power to forgive ALL your sins, that’s why He died for you. And Jesus is the only way to God. Jesus would give you peace. Don’t let the devil stop you from getting peace. Come back to God through Jesus Christ.

If you’d like to give your life to Jesus Christ or re-dedicate your life to Him, kindly say the prayer below:

Dear Jesus,
I know I’m a sinner,
I believe you died for me,
I ask you to forgive all my sins,
I accept and confess you as my Lord and Personal Saviour,
Come into my life.
Thank you, Jesus! Amen.


If you said that prayer, I welcome you into God’s glorious Family. Don’t let the devil put you into the bondage of guilt again. Should you have questions or comments, please make use of the comment box. Thank you for reading! God bless you!

  1. Wonderful write up…it blessed me-tore me to pieces then blessed me.

    Since you know me,you’d probably say this guy is just saying this…but NO! I PRAYED THE PRAYER ON MY KNEES HERE! God bless you sis


  2. This is beautiful. I’ve often felt this way. Not many Christians have the courage to write a piece like this. I like the story you used too, it’s a great nexus. Thanks for reminding me of God’s love and mercy. God bless you.
