Story Behind Song – The minute I heard this song, I knew I had to record it! “Just As I Am,” perfectly sums up the relationship God has with His children. ‘Just As I Am’ – that’s exactly how HE loves each one of us, through the good and the bad, with the heart of the Father. Being a father myself, I know how much I love my girls, Ashleigh and Emma, and to know that God’s love is even bigger than that … wow! To think that the Creator of the earth would love me is one thing, but to never stop loving me – no matter what – just as I am! That’s love! This phrase got me….
“If I can not earn your love by trying to measure up, why do I think I’d lose it in the lows!”
