I wanna have a heart like Jesus. A heart empty of judgment; full of love. A heart closed to fear and fully open to forgiveness. One that gives more than it takes and sees good in the midst of bad. A heart that beats FOR Him, not just because of Him. Every. Single. Beat. But I’m a sinner. I’m fragile and I’m human. And I fall short in tall ways. And my shortcomings overwhelm me in the light of His purity. Oh but grace…God’s grace. That which I cannot comprehend I can still choose to embrace. So I do. And the clean waters of His love wash the dirt away.
Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. Psalm 51:10 NIV
