“Happiness is a pure heart, for such a heart becomes the throne of God.”
+Saint Nektarius of Aegina
Many people look for things and experiences to make them happy, but that kind of happiness doesn’t last and won’t satisfy our souls.
True happiness is having a pure heart so God Himself can live in it with you. A pure heart is when your feelings, your mind and your will all want to love and serve God. That unity brings peace and happiness and creates a little nest for God which no one and nothing on earth can take from you.
Lord, create in me a clean heart, that I may find happiness in being near You.
