“Awful Grace”

In this series, we have been attempting to fathom the unfathomable — and find Scripture’s assurances that there are reasons, purposes, and even blessings in our suffering. That suffering is a chance to know God’s love more closely, it is an opportunity to care for others, it is a chance to know God’s rule and sufficiency in our life, and to know that He is working things, even hard things for our good. But there is a hard implication through all of this: God, our Father, our good Father, sends pain and even suffering into the lives of His children. He is a God of grace and of mercy….but sometimes that grace can seem awful.
