“Blessed are the pure in heart for they will see God!”
In my point of view, I can’t really be sharing this verse to anyone unless it’s happened to me. Or any of the bible verses for that matter. I’ve read the beatitudes in Sunday school. I’ve even memorized them because I had to. But when we get older (in the physical sense and spiritual sense), it means more than seeing God literally. It means seeing God work through the impossible, inside people’s hearts, inside people’s minds, inside people’s dreams, inside people’s routines. Sometimes I have faltering thoughts, and almost always tempted to just do things the easy way. But is the easy way the right way? Is the easy way what God really wants me to do? So I decide to pray every time I have ugly thoughts and I always ask for his guidance. I always pray for his love and strength to manifest in me so I can share them to other people. I want it to be contagious. And I decide to keep the ugly thoughts aside, obey him, keep my heart and mind pure, not because I want to please men. I want to please my God and if he sees that my heart is pure and I live for his glory alone, he will give me the desires of my heart (the desires that God has molded me to want and pray).
God is still working in me in many many ways!
