Fashioned By His Grace

This week’s Collect Prayer: “O God, who teach us that you abide in hearts that are just and true, grant that we may be so fashioned by your grace as to become a dwelling pleasing to you. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God, for ever and ever.”

The Lord fashions us by His grace—God is infinite goodness, and He loves each one of us. In the most painful, most incomprehensible moments of our lives, He is with us. His love is a mystery, but our anguish can be a prayer if we trust in Him. 

God is our Father, He gives us our existence in every moment. He loves us, and His love is stronger than all the agony we face in life. He “fashions” us in the joys and sorrows of this life into the persons He has created us to become, for an eternal life more beautiful than anything we can imagine. 

God is good. No matter what happens, never stop trusting in Him.
