Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God. Matthew 5:8 NIV
A right heart is the foundation for everything else. I can do a lot of things. I can fill my task list with all kinds of “good” things but if I do not do them in love, they are not worthy. Often in prayer I ask God to search my heart because I want to offer it up to Him and I trust Him to keep it right. Sometimes I see an element of fear or comparison or performance and I ask Him to get rid of it. I ask Him to fill my heart with things too. Like discernment and wisdom and love. Sometimes I just ask Him to make it right and then He shows me what’s going on. I’m so thankful. He is the best heart surgeon around! Talk about preventive medicine! And I always ask that He fill me with His love. His perfect love heals all. All we have to do is ask Him and He will do it.
