St. Isaac the Syrian on looking for God in your heart.
There’s a great quote from Blessed Augustine where he says, “Our hearts were made for You, O Lord, and will not rest until they rest in You.” This principle is also found in this statement from St. Isaac the Syrian, who tells us to look for God in our heart:
Seek God daily. But seek Him in your heart, not outside it. And when you find Him, stand with fear and trembling, like the Cherubim and the Seraphim, for your heart has become a throne of God. But in order to find God, become humble as dust before the Lord, for the Lord abhors the proud, whereas He visits those that are humble in heart.
"I didn't know Orthodoxy existed five years ago, but after a friend introduced me to this beautiful faith, I found Ancient Faith Radio by accident when searching for information on the internet. I was recently chrismated and now happily travel over 100 miles several times each week to attend services while I supplement my knowledge and peace with Ancient Faith podcasts and music. Thank you for all you do."
