What is the grace of God for trials and hardships? If it is just something distant for me to say that I rely on, then that is something interesting. But if it is truly life-giving, power in weakness, then it ought to change the way that I live. It ought to heal my broken relationships. It ought to get my focus off myself and onto the purposes of God because God is my provider, because God gives me joy and life abundant, because God saved me from my own self!
