I’m Scared

Im Scared

God blesses those whose hearts are pure, for they will see God.
God blesses those who work for peace, for they will be called the children of God.
(Matthew 5: 7-9)


Pure heart?

Working for peace?

These virtues take humility, awareness of people’s feelings, and sensitivity to how I interact with them.

I believe I have a good heart and want to serve people and make a difference. But sometimes I’m so self-focused, I’m not aware of other people’s feelings. So unless I’m leading the dance, I step on their toes.

If you know me and you’re reading this, I know I’m this way. I see it. But I’m trapped in lifelong habits. Even though I don’t want to be insensitive, it has been a way of protecting myself from getting hurt. It’s scary coming out.

Here I come!
