Why is it so hard to accept grace?

Why is it so hard to accept grace? Because nothing else in life works this way. Grace is unmerited favor in a world that is built on what you do, how well you do it, and how important or valuable you are to the group or the system. Everything seems to be best on merit, and even when you have been told to “just be yourself.” Grace is not easy to believe in, so therefore, it is not easy to accept.

It takes faith to believe that grace is available to you. It takes believing that beyond what you see everyday in your life, yet still, there is more. Yet still, you can experience a life that is woven in Light, despite shadows that seem to crowd around you.
