Father, we come . . .
thinking what we do will earn Your love.
thinking what we do will keep us close.
You tell us it's not about all that we do.
You tell us it's not about all that we think.
might we know that You love us.
might we know this deeply and full.
we think holding it all together is what's important.
we think holding it all together is what teaches grace.
grace isn't about being graceful, as in prim and proper and pretty and perfect.
grace isn't about all that we sometimes make it to be.
teach us to rest.
teach us to trust.
You love us, as we are.
You love them, as they are.
might we simply know.
might we fully know.
