I wonder how many times I have thought myself to be a perfectly righteous person and had something bad happen to me. Whether a financial problem or a sickness or a relationship, whatever the case may be. How many times have I wondered where God's grace is when in fact, could it not be true that while he is allowing me to go through suffering... due to the fact that I am certainly not perfectly righteous in all that I do... he is in fact having grace on me even in that moment. That what I truly deserve is so much more than what I am going through? Interesting that we tend to believe to know what is or isn't grace.

Job 11:4-6 - For you say, ‘My doctrine is pure, and I am clean in God’s eyes.’ But oh, that God would speak and open his lips to you, and that he would tell you the secrets of wisdom! For he is manifold in understanding.
Know then that God exacts of you less than your guilt deserves.
