Day 21: Become Childlike

40 Days Transformation & Change of Heart
Day 21: Become Childlike

Do you remember the Magic of Christmas as a little child?
This photo is my precious grand-babies visiting Mr. & Mrs. Clause.
Their smiles and hugs light up my home and heart! Their enthusiasm and anticipation for Christmas is tangible, I want to just scoop up that joy and preserve it in a mason jar so I never forget it.

Why do you think Christ asks us to be like a little child?

These precious children of God come to us with believing hearts. They are full of faith and receptive to feelings of the Spirit. They exemplify humility, obedience, and love. They are often the first to love and the first to forgive.
To Be Childlike is to have Humility- To be able to submit to God's will. It is not a sign of weakness, timidity, or fear; it is an indication that you know where your true strength lies. You can be both humble and fearless. you an be both humble and courageous.
To Be Childlike is be Believing- in Miracles, the Spirit of Santa Claus, the Goodness of Mankind, the Magic of Forgiveness , that Prayers make a difference and that there's Hope in Jesus Christ. 
To Be Childlike is be Obedient- to the laws of the land, to your Parents, by Keeping the Commandments, to Rules of your Home and work place, and Faithful to one another. 
To Be Childlike is be Forgiving- to those who hurt and wrong you, to yourself when you mess up again and again, of organizations and governments, of your enemies, and most of all to our families and loved ones.
To Be Childlike is to Have a Changed Heart.
You notice this list of what it is to be Childlike is not what the world finds popular or attractive, it's certainly not promoted, sought after or advertised for. But, in the end it will be some the most valuable attributes we will want to have.
“Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.
“Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven” Matthew 18:3-4
Is Yours a Childlike Heart?

  1. Judy I'm enjoying reading your blog. This picture of your grandchildren brings back memories of our childhood. Seeing you and Jennifer sitting on Santa's lap and how can I not forget those Gingerbread houses. You're a great example to me. Your sister who loves you dearly.
