What if it doesn’t FEEL like God’s grace is sufficient?

When we are facing challenges and hear God saying, ‘My grace is sufficient for you,’ it can feel like bringing a cup of water to a roaring wildfire.  But what are we expecting God’s grace to do?  Are we expecting it to fix all of our problems?  Take the difficulty away?  If so we will feel disappointed and angry and frustrated.  However, if we picture God’s grace as a deep well that has made it possible for us to survive the fire and have water left to start over, we gain in our understanding of what ‘sufficient’ means. – Pastor Trudy Stoffel
