Grace through our Prayers
As I see the Lotus flower, it brings softness to my heart and happiness from it beauty. I was once asked, “What is Grace?” It was difficult to answer. Through days of brainwork and reflection of what grace is to me, I came into conclusion that it was strength I was given and blessings given. Transformation is what occurs to me as “grace”. It was God’s endless love and understanding of my afflictions. This was difficult to understand by the reason of trying to pinpoint the pain and understand why I am going through suffering. The troubles I had endured was burdening and challenging by the reason that it was not easy to reflect back to my sufferings. I did not want to see them. However, through contemplation and this difficult upstream, I continued to come to peace with myself.
The Lotus can symbolize grace through prayers. The blossom presence is that of boundless compassion. The flower represents mercy. In addition, the plant represents undefilement and blossoms without a blemish as it rises out of the darkness and transcends into the light. The water encompasses the Lotus and bears support to stay afloat through our afflictions or trials which shows our father carrying our hearts endlessly for what we lack.
