Up Close and Personal

If you know me, you know how much I love my nephews.  I have 4 of them, and they are amazing.  Jude, the oldest is full of life and is the most affectionate child who always wants the entire family to be together.  He is all about hanging out at Nana and Granddaddy’s house, catching lizards and riding his tractor.  He has such an innocent little heart, and he has no idea how much he reminds me of the importance of innocence.  If he hears something that he is not suppose to hear or repeat, he instantly responds and makes all of us aware.  His heart is so open to what’s wrong and right…there is something so sweet about that.

I was reading this morning about having a pure heart in Psalm 24:22-24 and was reminded of the Beatitudes that Jesus talked about in Matthew 5:8…

“Blessed are the pure at heart, for they will see God”

I hope that in the midst of a crazy world, that I remain a pure-hearted person who sees people as they really are, and who loves unconditionally…for I will see God.  I hope that by the grace of God I can refrain from the useless things that destroy my heart and soul so that I live life according to what God had in mind when he created me.   I don’t want worry, stress, pain, and suffering to keep me from experiencing all that God has for me…it’s in the midst of those things that I can experience a God who is my helper and friend…and then I will be able to see Him up-close and personal…
