“Blessed Are the Pure in Heart”
In one of the more interesting paradoxes in life, you, O God, are everywhere, but we have to know where to look to see you.
And the key to knowing where to look is to look from the right vantage point.
Give us, O God, pure hearts—hearts, wills, and lives that want one thing and one thing only: to know you—because it from the vantage point of that one desire that we can see you.
We look forward to the day when we will have absolute purity of heart and we will see you face to face.
But cause us to grow in singleness of heart here and now, day by day, moment by moment, blessing by blessing, and crisis by crisis, so that we might see you more and more clearly with each passing second.
Thank you that each time we see you a little more clearly our hearts become a little more pure.
“Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God” (Matthew 5:8).
