The sufficiency of God's grace

"In all the events of life the faithful soul is always given grace sufficient for the matter in hand; there is no possibility of insufficiency of grace. The realisation of this truth adds greatly to the calmness with which one may face crises and enables one to accept the events of life as they come without undue worry. As the sense of one's own insufficiency deepens, as one realises that one's failures in the spiritual life are the result of one's own fault or weakness, and not of the failure of grace, so one is able to abandon oneself to the sufficiency of God."

F. P. Harton, The Elements of the Spiritual Life, p28.
