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! I also 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.
Father, take my heart and make it Yours.
