Quote: “…I knew God loved me…”

“On a particular Sunday morning I found myself in church. Near the end of the service the minister lifted up a piece of bread and the cup of wine for communion, and she said, ‘These are the gifts of God for the people of God.’ Suddenly my heart leapt. I realized I had come to God’s house, and God was asking me to eat at God’s table. In that instant I knew God loved me and wanted to be part of my life no matter who I was. I was finally able to give up trying to be ‘good enough’ for God.”
