Although we recognize God’s grace as wholly and freely given, we still struggle to accept that grace for ourselves. It is possible to feel that we do not deserve forgiveness, that we are too flawed to be loved. So we ask God to grant us the security we need to accept the grace offered to us. May we know that whatever our weaknesses may be, God loves us for our humanity. Even in times when we feel broken, let us feel more complete by the gift of God’s grace.
