“You may wonder what you have done to deserve God’s love. How is it that God has shown you such kindness?
This is the very stuff of grace, that He amazes you, contradicts every expectation, seeks you out, finds you and lavishes His love upon you. You have done nothing and can do nothing to earn His grace.
The secret of His grace to you lies deep in the mystery of His foreknowledge. Simply receive it, celebrate it, delight yourself in it and live as one whom God is pleased to favor from His overflowing resources of kindness.” - Terry Virgo via OFI
