Think to be pure in your thought life -
no more evil thoughts about others, suspicion, envy ! ENVY!
Are you free from envy, as far as you are aware of it?
It spoke to me mightily - to be pure in heart -
they shall see God, from there the issues of life come forth!
Anybody out there interested in such an overcoming life,
as Jesus has demonstrated? Every thought captive into obedience!
Is it not amazing that you can acutally do that, thanks to Jesus.
You can actually suffer with Him in our own flesh now!
You can actually purify yourself just as He is pure, here!
You can actually become obedient to that faith, that was in Jesus,
who learnt obedience by what He suffered, it was not given for Him fore free!
Isn't that something to care about- to get a pure thought life,
keep your heart pure! From all envy, all evil suspicion, and adultery!
Your thoughts, your eyes, where to they wonder? You can be victorious, He always leads us into triumph.

Your intent is admirable but you've mixed two separate topics together which the bible treats separately.I mean 1.the heart 2.thoughts.
You can't keep your heart clean...Bible says the heart is desperately wicked,WHO CAN KNOW IT.Thats the bad news from the old Testament.The Good news is that Jesus has done it for us.In Titus we are told that 'Jesus Christ has purified unto Himself a people'.notice that it is past tense,referring to Christs finished work of salvation.Cleaning our heart is not something we do,it is something we receive just like our salvation.Peter said,'you have purified your hearts by your obedience to the truth'.Once again its past tense,he is saying 'youv'e got it .It is a once for all experience to be recv'd by faith.It's a great experience to wake up everyday knowing that you have a pure clean heart and that nothing can change that!!!!
After that all we need is to learn to get our flesh(body)under the control of our new heart and spirit.Negative thoughts won't change your clean heart but they won't do us any good either.There is a great verse in Titus 'to the pure in heart all things are pure'.Meditate and ask God about that one will get amazing results.If the centre of your being,who you really are,is pure then uncleaness becomes a smaller issue.www.godspower2u.com.au
