a clean heart

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change... -Psalm 46:1-2
God is both further from us, and nearer to us, than any other being... He makes, we are made: He is the original, we derivative. But at the same time, and for the same reason, the intimacy between God and even the meanest creature is closer than any that creatures can attain with one another. Our life is, at every moment, supplied by Him: our tiny, miraculous power of free will only operates in bodies which His continual energy keeps in existence- our very power to think is His power communicated to us.
O Lord, thank you for the many ways you animate me, body and soul. Help me to rely entirely on you, no matter what.
