Heavenly Father, you offer us abundant grace, mercy, and forgiveness through your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ. Help me to live a grace-filled life as Mary did by believing in your promises and by giving you my unqualified "yes" to your will and to your plan for my life.
Lord, you are the author of life and of love. You wish
to draw me closer to you, and yet I seem to find so many ways to escape
from you. Forgive my dullness and coldness of heart. At least here I am
now, hungry to know you and love you more and more.
