Failing to forgive, to pray, to love; often leaves us feeling hopeless as if we will
never measure up. God loves us right where we are, with all our imperfections. Even
when we fail, the beauty of Christ remains in us and God can use us to make a difference
in the lives of others.
Prayer: God, wrap me in your grace and in your unfailing love. Let your beauty shine
through me even when I am weak. Amen
