Children come into this world innocent and pure in heart. When our hearts are pure, we experience happiness, which means we are blessed. By nature, we are sinful. To keep our hearts clean day-by-day, we must acknowledge and confess our sins to God. I have found that when I struggle with life issues and do not allow God to do what He does best, I suffer. However, when I surrender my whole heart to Jesus and allow Him to work in me, I become closer to God. I am a child of God and you are too. Moreover, when God purifies our hearts, we become pure in heart. This cleansing moves us in a direction of living our lives so that we become more like God, which allows us to “see” Him.
"Blesses are the pure in heart, for they will see God"
~ Matthew 5:8 (NIV)
