We all yearn for mercy: to be held unconditionally by God in our brokenness. The things in our lives that weigh upon our hearts, that even embarrass us, need not keep us from God. We ought to know, in faith, beyond what we may feel, that God awaits us, the Merciful One invites us. And, in allowing ourselves to be held by God, the joy of God radiates.
Yours in Christ,
