Amazing what you find when you lose something. I lost my phone for two days and looked for it at least 10 different times finding all sorts of things that had previously went missing like my wool jacket, one of my favorite water bottles and a bunch of other little misplaced items that I am now happy to have back. Last week I was trying to find my slippers and looked all over the house for them digging around and organizing things as I went. When I couldn’t find them after a good hard look I finally asked my wife if she knew where my slippers were? She laughed as she said “there are on your feet silly.”
When you go in search of purity likewise you will find all kinds of things that you lost. Friendships, the outdoors, honesty, fathers, adventure, dreams, tears, family, humility, hope, faith,…….. In the end it is really a grace disguised because it got you organized, cleaned up, and you not only found purity,… but everything else your heart needs along the way.
