“God blesses those whose hearts are pure, for they will see God.” Matthew 5:8 (NLT)

Step 4—Openly examine and confess my faults to myself, to God, and to someone I trust. There’s something powerful about getting real with another human being, someone I see every day. I can forget that God is always with me, because I can’t see Him; it’s easier to hold myself accountable to someone who is physically present with me, who can remind me of who God wants me to be. Having a partner on this journey helps me to focus on the task at hand each day.
