In Your Presence

"Here in Your presence, we are undone."
What does it mean to be undone in the presence of God? I think of our reputations or "masks". The ones we strive to build tall and beautiful- unshakable and "strong". They are what people see and know us by. Reputations are walls built around who we really are, to hide what we don't think is good enough to be accepted or loved.
But, in the presence of God, the locks of our reputations and our guards are undone and we are completely vulnerable before Him. No walls or barriers. All bounds are eliminated and its just plain, old, unlovable us. But the wonderful truth is that God loves us that way. He loves us, no matter how unlovable we are.
Father, show me Your strong love.
